Welcome to your London Marathon Supporter Guide for Team Whizz Kidz!

Firstly, thank you for all your support so far for our runners – through your donations, time, words of encouragement and so much more, we will be able to reach even more young wheelchair users this year!

We would love for you to be alongside us to cheer on your loved ones. Here is all the information you’ll need for race day

You can also see the Runner’s Guide here and we recommend taking some time to look at the London Marathon’s Official guide for the day before the 21st April

Thank you for supporting Whizz Kidz and we hope to see you on Race Day!

Team Whizz Kidz

Meet us at the London Marathon Running Show

The London Marathon Running Show is the final step in the registration process and takes place between Wednesday 17thto Saturday 20th April at the ExCel Centre. All runners need to attend to collect their race numbers and they cannot run on race day without doing this.

Whizz Kidz will be there as well so please encourage your runner(s) to pop over and say hello – we will be on stand C31.

For more information, including opening times, please see the London Marathon website:

Sunday 21stApril – Race Day

London Marathon tracking app

We really recommend downloading the TCS London Marathon App ahead of race day so you are able to track your runner around the route to figure out your timings.

Team Photo

Before the race, we are encouraging everyone on Team Whizz Kidz to meet us in Greenwich Park for a team photo at 9am – see the Runner’s Guide for more information.  

The Route

We have four incredible Whizz Kidz cheering points across the route to cheer on our runners and we encourage you to join us so your runner knows where you will be. Make a note of their runner number and download the official London Marathon app to be able to track them on race day.

We will be around mile 9, 12.5, 19 and 24 (we will aim to get as close as possible to the mile markers so please keep an eye out for our yellow banners and flags):

The Finish Line and Post Race Reception

Our Post Race Reception is held at The Royal Institution which is a quick 10-minute walk from the finish line. You can find directions here.

At the reception, runners can get hot meal and a massage, and there is a café and bar open for you to purchase refreshments.

Your runner will need to formally RSVP to this, and please note that due to capacity they are allowed a maximum for 6 guests only. They can RSVP here.

The full address is The Royal Institution, 21 Albemarle Street, London, W1S 4BS

Thank you

Finally, on behalf of everyone at Whizz Kidz, thank you so much for your support and hope to see you on race day!
