Murray's full set of London Marathon photos here

2014 was the 22nd time I had been present at the London Marathon; I plan it to be my last. A selection of the memories. Murray Lambden 15 April 2014

Nigel Armstrong had his number signed by the winner and the world record holder, Wilson Kipsang.

And Nigel took my photo with the fastest man ever, Geoffrey Mutai (his 2:03:04 in Boston didn't count as a world record). He was 6th.

On my Saturday morning run I stopped for a chat with 3rd and 4th placers Tsegaye Kebede (right) and Ayele Abshero.

Travelling to the start of the marathnn on the DLR we met Vicky Radcliffe and her family.

I left the start to meet my sister Margaid, who lives in London, and I met Sharen Gardner and Helen Taylor.

Its not hard to get close to the action if you chose your spot carefully. The elite women were soon with us just beyond 5 miles.

One of the greatest athletes of all time, Haile Gabrselassie, was pace making.

We were on the lookup for Manx runners particularly my former training partners Nigel Armstrong and Paul Curphey.

We just missed the leaders at my planned position at 15 miles but caught Mo Farah as we emerged from West Ferry station.

The first and second runners were just breaking from the pack at our main camera spot at about 20.5 miles.

Adam Russell may not have achieved the sub 2.45 time he targeted but 2.47 was still a fine performance.

I missed Chris Shimmin who was next Manxman but Ian Goatman alerted me of his presence.

Rosy Craine never fails to smile. She was the fastest Manx woman.

Helen Taylor was smiling during and after the marathon - she travelled to Australia immediately after the race

Cliff Dunn saw the Manx flag.

Richard Whitehead was one of the most popular in the field.

Paul Curphey gate crashed the winner's party which was held at our hotel, the Grange Tower Bridge, to take this photo.
