on BBC One London

The Start of the Gillette London Marathon
Over 17,000 runners set out from Blackheath on the classic marathon distance of 26miles 385yards, some with expectations of winning, others seeking a personal goal of just finishing the course.
BBC outside broadcast cameras cover ' live ' the amazing scenes at the start of an event which captured the imagination of viewers last year, and which promises so much more this time. Will the oldest entrant, 80-year-old ALBERT GORDON from New York, reach the finish at Westminster Bridge? Can Britain's Joyce Smith again be the first woman to finish? Over five hours of endeavour he ahead for some. Commentators
