If you have a loved one running the London Marathon in October and want an easy way to see how they’re doing, then you’re in luck.
To track their progress throughout the day, there’s a simple app that lets you keep tabs on their condition during the marathon.
Although most runners take just over four hours to complete the race, some can take longer and it’s always nice to check back to see how they are doing.
The app reads: “Whether you’re taking part in London or the virtual event – or following your friends and family – the official TCS London Marathon app, powered by TCS, is your perfect companion for the TCS London Marathon 2022 Sunday, October 2.
How does the London Marathon tracking app work?
When you download the app, you will be taken to the homepage which gives you all the options and features available, including how to follow a participant.
Just go to the “Tracking” section and search for the runner by name or bib number.
It will then display the progress made along the course and if you activate your GPS, the position of the runner will be more precise.
