Tens of thousands of runners descend on London for one of the biggest events of the year... but there's a lot more to the Virgin Money London Marathon than just running. Over thirteen episodes crammed with some of comedy's brightest talents and the odd celebrity cameo, we get inside the minds of: a man who's entered the race by accident; an aunt being blackmailed by her niece; a ghost doomed to haunt the course for eternity; a woman who develops an unusual relationship with her phone; and a couple who are about to get engaged with disastrous consequences... among many others.

This is a brilliant series of comedy episodes on an ambitious scale, typical of Mark Watson’s skilful writing and amazing ability to invent extraordinary stories. It’s laugh-out-loud funny with a brilliant and varied cast. The production values are excellent too. The intertwining stories and genuinely hilarious characters make it a really rewarding listen. I can’t recommend this highly enough.
