The 2011 Virgin London marathon was a record breaker! Emmanuel Mutai set a new course record of 2:04.34 and Mary Keitany showed that she can run much, much faster, with her time of 2:19.19. The starting field of 34,500 made for a great day of racing and personal victories.
Here is the photo gallery, created by Running Network’s Chuck Bartlett, on the 2011 Virgin London marathon. We hope that you enjoy! (Special thanks to PhotoRun.net for the use of their photos).
