London Marathon Injury Clinic

The 2021 London Marathon will take place on 3rd October with up to 50,000 runners following the traditional course from Greenwich to The Mall. As the big day draws ever closer, it is vitally important that all runners consider their health and wellbeing both before and after the big day.

Most of those lucky enough to secure their place in this world-famous event have already been well immersed into their training schedules over the summer. With less than one month to go, many runners are now starting to consider tapering their training. Tapering typically begins around 2-4 weeks before the marathon itself, depending on the runner’s experience and their specific training schedule.

During the tapering off period, it is useful for runners to start protecting their fitness to ensure they are in tip-top condition for the race day. Training during the last couple of weeks may involve shorter and faster sessions that maintain the fitness routine and keep the body on form, without tiring or causing any injuries before the race itself. Sleep and rest are also very important during this period as this helps to protect the immune system. This is also a good time for massage therapy or physiotherapy techniques to calm any niggles before the big day.
