Wheel chair runner, London's Marathon 2012

Did you know that the London Marathon is actually 26.2 miles long (42.16 km). The reason for this is, in the 1908 London Olympics, the distance was extended so that the royal family could watch the start of the race from Windsor Castle and the end of the race from the royal box in the Olympic stadium.
