How to watch London Marathon 2024: TV channel and live stream for today’s race

The London Marathon takes place today as more than 50,000 runners are expected to hit the streets of the capital.

This year’s event is set to be an emotional occasion as tributes are paid to Kelvin Kiptum, the marathon world-record holder and last year’s winner who tragically died in a car accident in Kenya back in February.

Over £66million is set to be raised for charity in 2024, while race organisers are hoping that the marathon’s “force for good” nature will deter any potential protests along the famous 26.2-mile route that takes in many of the city’s most well-known landmarks.

It’s expected to be dry and intermittently sunny weather in London on race day, with only a slight chance of rain.

Here’s how to watch proceedings live today.
