The Loneliness of The Long Distance Runner
The Loneliness of The Long Distance Runner
...With apologies to Alan Sillitoe.

This participant in the London Marathon has somehow found himself some space as he passes along Upper Bank Street. You're never truly alone on the London Marathon with hoards of spectators to cheer you on. The section through Canary Wharf is one of the noisiest. Behind is the London Bus Company's ex-BEA Routemaster (RMA48) operating as a mobile studio for BBC London. I had the misfortune to be collared for an interview not long after taking this photo!

Note the leaflet advertising Oyster Cards in the left hand corner - Public transport is really the only way to get around the London Marathon sites.
