The 2022 TCS Mini London Marathon Championships gives the UK’s most promising young athletes the chance to compete against the best new talent in British road running, just like in the previous Mini Marathon events. This year however there are some changes - the event will now take place the day before the TCS London Marathon – Saturday 1 October and the route will be 2.6km.
The Championships kick-start what’s set to be an amazing day on Saturday 1 October 2022 – the children and young people taking part will be the first people to cross the world-famous TCS London Marathon Finish Line this year (yes, even before the adult elite athletes!). The championship participants will set off first in the morning, from approximately 09:00am, followed by the waves that will make up the rest of the event (schools event).
