The 44th London Marathon is taking place on Sunday 21st April. Around 50,000 people are expected to take part in the 26.2 mile trek around the capital.

The elite men’s and women’s able-bodied and wheelchair races will each have a prize pot of £243,000 with the winners receiving £44k each.

With the average London rent at £554 per week, each winner will receive the equivalent of 79 weeks' of London rent.

Looking at various points along the Marathon route, starting in Greenwich, you'd get 74 weeks' rent. Moving through Limehouse, the prize pot equates to 68 weeks' rent. Along Embankment, you'd get 93 weeks'. Finally, at Buckingham Palace, the prize money would cover just 37 weeks' rent. Source: #Dataloft Rental Market Analytics, rents over the last year.
