Berlin, Boston, Chicago, Paris, New York and Tokyo are right up there with London in terms of the biggest global marathons, while the likes of the Nepal International Marathon and the Sierra Leone Marathon offer something completely different.
There are plenty of other options too, both shorter and longer. They range from a quick hop over the Channel for the Paris half marathon right through to the Marathon des Sables in the Sahara, which is dubbed 'the world’s toughest footrace'.
