TAKING IT TO THE STREETS

Maybe the fans turned out in swarms because the marathon was one of the final events of the London Olympics. Or maybe because a lot of the tickets were free.

Maybe the fans turned out in swarms because the marathon was one of the final events of the London Olympics. Or maybe because a lot of the tickets were free.

Either way, the marathon was well-supported Sunday morning as the runners raced through fan-packed streets.

The runners were seeing the sights that many tourists might when they ride the famed double-decker buses of London. The race went past Big Ben, St. Paul's Cathedral, Trafalgar Square, London Bridge and the Tower of London, before finishing near Buckingham Palace.
