The Best Meals for London Marathoners

These local eateries will help you fuel (and recover) like a champ.

It’s one of the most popular destination marathons in the world — hence, each April, runners from every corner of the globe descend upon London to lap up 26.2 miles of the city’s historic streets and landmarks. This year's running, organizers have announced, will also be a show of solidarity for those affected by the tragedies at Monday's Boston Marathon. A moment of silence will precede each wave start, and runners will receive black ribbons with their bibs, which they'll be encouraged to wear as a sign of support. 

Whether you’re a local or making your Virgin London Marathon debut, proper nutrition is essential. These five meals at the city’s most runner-friendly eateries will eliminate the guesswork.
