Good morning, Steph here with coverage of the Virgin Money London Marathon 2016

Here's the running order...

Here's the wheelchair men's start list

As usual wolf man David Wier is a favourite

Wheelchair women's start list

I love marathon morning. I lived in and around Greenwich and Woolwich for much of the 90s. Its a great atmosphere.

Wheelchair athletes are lined up and ready. Josh George and Tatiana McFadden are the defending champions.

They're off and heading for Charlton. Conditions are ok, rain has cleared away but its very cold.

IPC athletes are starting now. Some of these guys are totally blind, others visually impaired to different degrees. AMAZING people.

4 of the wheelchair men have broken away from the pack. Could call it a peloton but they probably don't like that.
