free food for london marathon runners

It’s almost London Marathon time again…yes thousands of you will take to the streets on Sunday for a beastly 26.2 mile run from Blackheath to the Mall. Whether you’re doing it for charity or for the glory, there’ll be plenty of rewards waiting for you at the finish line like free burgers, roasts and pints. There’s no amount of free food or drink that would persuade us to run it but you defo deserve to stuff you face afterwards, so show off your medal and claim your goodies.

Free roast and pint at Mr Fogg’s Taven

If you can still walk after all that running, head straight down to Mr Fogg’s Tavern for a Sunday roast and a pint on the house. Yorkshires, roasties and lots of gravy…that should be enough to get you over the line.

Free Veni-Moo burger at Mac & Wild

Take the rest of the Sunday to recover and then bring along your medal to either branch of Mac & Wild on the Monday and receive one of their signature Veni-Moo burgers – that’s beef and venison patties, bacon, onions and bernaise sauce in a brioche bun – completely free.

Free burger at Maxwell’s

You’ve trained hard and run far so what better way to celebrate (and retox) than with a dirty burger. Maxwell’s is dishing them out to all finishers for free, including their Cheesebomb creation…a bacon burger with its own jug of hot melty Cheddar cheese.

Free pie in a box at The Queen’s Head
