This weekend marks the 42nd London Marathon, with thousands heading to the streets of the capital to participate and support athletes.

Of course, not everyone that wants to show their support can make it to London, with the announcement of rail strikes on the weekend making it even harder.

However, there is still a way for you to show your support to the hard-working runners taking on the 26-mile run.

The BBC is showing full coverage of the running event throughout the morning, meaning you can stay warm and watch from home.
