Obviously, the biggest reward of running the London Marathon is the sense of pride and achievement you’ll get as you cross the finish line.

But after that, a freebie or two can make all that pain extra worthwhile. And let’s be honest, anyone brave enough to take part in a marathon deserves a treat for their efforts.

If you’re running the London Marathon this weekend, you’ll be glad to know that a number of brands are offering free stuff to anyone with a medal. 

From pizza to bath bombs and a cheeky pint or two, here are the best offers and freebies for everyone running the London Marathon. 

Free travel across London

To get around London for free on the bus, underground, overground or DLR on race day simply show your bib, medal or officials pass to a member of TFL staff.

The free service will run until 6.30pm on Sunday throughout the capital.
