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.

I’ve long been a fan of Mark Watson’s writing. This series showcases his witty and inventive characterisation and wordplay and the comedy talents of an all-star cast. Great fun, surprisingly poignant in places and all the more rewarding as it continues and various storylines interweave. Highly recommended.
