Scenes from the London Marathon

The numbers: It’s one of the world’s largest sporting events, with more than 36,000 runners; 15 of the runners have run in every race since the first one, in 1981, when only 7,747 entered; 888,552 people have finish the race over its 33-year history; there were 750,000 bottles of water at 23 water stations along the course; over the years, more than £50 million has been raised for charities; this year’s race featured 41 live music groups along the course and 78 pubs nearby to quench the thirst of the 650,000 spectators.
