Keen to avoid a fiasco similar to that at the Sheffield Half Marathon, London Marathon organisers have ordered more than 200 tonnes of water.
TNT Express will deliver 1.25 million bottles of water and 600 trestle tables to stations along the Marathon route this Sunday (13 April).
Months of planning have gone into the project to ensure that the 36,000 expected runners are kept well hydrated throughout the race. It’s well trodden territory for TNT Express, who have supplied to the London Marathon for 25 years.
TNT will also deliver 40,000 goody bags – including food, fluid and foil blankets – to the finish line at The Mall.
Alistair Cochrane, managing director at TNT Express, said: “TNT Express ensures that large sports events, such as the London Marathon…all run smoothly and efficiently.”
