Six Maasai warriors and a 101 year old are among those taking part in this morning's London Marathon.
Around 40,000 runners are expected to take to the 21 mile course in the British capital.
Weather forecasters have said that conditions should be fine and warm with showers later on in the day.
Last year, hundreds needed treatment after temperatures rose above 20C.
