Well today is Marathon Day and London stands still to marvel at the athleticism of the brave and crazy runners. We will certainly have our eyes on the race and wish all of the runners the best of luck.
Whilst we look on in admiration for the super fit and make the annual promise to put on our running shoes, we are as always, amazed at the number of spectators who come out to show their support in their tens of thousands! The whole of London comes alive as it cheers on the Men and Women’s Elite runners and all of the charity runners in their spectacular costumes. So far today we have spotted a woman preparing to run in high heels and a woman in a Mona Lisa picture frame!
Perhaps some of our staff should run it next year dressed up in Fortbox storage boxes! What a great idea…….
Thankfully our storage locations in St Johns Wood and Chelsea are fairly unaffected by the marathon as we aren’t on the route. In fact, there are some great activities surrounding us that we may well get involved in today;
The finish line is probably the closest we get to the action with the final straight on the Mall. There is also a live music venue just up the road at Temple Place. In fact we may even pop down to the Red Lion, SW1A 2NH shortly to watch the Elite Men run the final mile.
Congratulations to everyone who is taking part today and well done London for organising yet another fantastic event!
