Transport for London logoFree travel for London Marathon runnersNo need to buy a ticket, just show your race number to staff


Sometimes getting to the London Marathon can be as tough as the race itself, but one bonus of being a runner is you can get free public transport on most services within London and on some services to and from the capital on race day.

Here's a list of services giving marathon runners (but not spectators) free travel on Sun 24 Apr. You don't need to get a ticket, just show your race number to staff.

  • Transport for London - runners can travel for free on London Underground, London buses, London Overground, DLR and trams until 6.30pm. If you're a race official or on-duty St John Ambulance volunteer you can also travel for free on these services by showing your officials' course pass or tabard.
  • Southeastern - runners get free travel from Charing Cross, Waterloo East, Cannon Street, London Bridge and Victoria stations to the marathon start lines at Greenwich, Maze Hill and Blackheath.
  • C2C Rail - runners get free travel between Essex and London.
  • Chiltern Railways - runners get free travel on London Marylebone services.
  • Oxford Bus Company - runners can travel free on the X90 coach service between Oxford and London.

Chiltern Railways logoChiltern Rail up to 40% off W Mid to Lon (save 2k+)Day returns & huge savings for new & existing season ticket holders


You can get up to 40% off day returns and season tickets between the West Midlands and London (starting from either location) with Chiltern Railways until Thu 30 Apr. Chiltern Railways says it's offering this discount as a thank you to passengers affected by rail disruption after a landslide in January between Leamington and Banbury.

Day tickets

You can get the discount on direct day returns for travel until Thu 30 Apr (if you want a single, it's worth checking if it would work out cheaper getting a return with this deal). An anytime day return between Chiltern Railways' West Midlands stations and London usually costs £99, but with this deal you can get it for £74.80. An off-peak ticket between the West Midlands and London has been reduced to £39.50 from £50.

If you're not constrained to travelling at a certain time, you can sometimes find a 'super off-peak return' ticket for even cheaper. On Wed 8 Apr we found a 'super off-peak return' to London on Thu 9 Apr for £29, so be sure to check out all fare options first. 

Season tickets

For season tickets, you can save more than £2,000 on an annual ticket as long as you buy it by 11.59pm on Thu 30 Apr. What's more, if you've already bought your season ticket at full-price, Chiltern Railways says you can exchange it for a new one at the lower price.

An annual season ticket between Birmingham Moor Street and Marylebone is reduced from £7,868 to £5,412 - a saving of £2,456, while a monthly season ticket between Warwick Parkway and Marylebone usually costs £745, but you can get one for £519.60 with this deal.

See the table below for more ticket prices between the West Midlands and London (the Banbury Fare Match column is the price you'll pay after the discount). The discount will be applied automatically when you buy tickets online or at the station.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.
