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, pizzas and pasta. 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 Veni-Moo burger at Mac & Wild

You can head to the Fitzrovia branch of Mac & Wild straight after the marathon for a freebie but you can also 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.
