Trestle tables at the London Marathon for drinks stations.

We have supplied our trestle tables to the London Marathon for many years now. If you are watching the Marathon then see if you can spot the BE Event Hire on top of all the tables dotted around the course at the drinks stations. Our tables are set up just before the race and then the last participant is followed around and they are collected up and the road reopened.

Marathon Drink Stations

The London Marathon is among the most prestigious long-distance running events globally. Held annually in London, usually in April, it covers 26.2 miles (42.195 kilometres). The race begins in Greenwich Park and finishes at The Mall, near Buckingham Palace. Along the route, runners pass many iconic landmarks, such as Tower Bridge, the Houses of Parliament, and the London Eye.

Drink stations are strategically placed along the marathon route, typically every mile or 1.6 kilometres. This frequent placement ensures that runners have consistent access to hydration throughout the race, which is crucial for maintaining performance and preventing dehydration.

Water, available in bottles at every drink station, is the primary source of hydration. It is essential for replenishing the fluids lost through sweat.

Sports Drinks:
Isotonic drinks like Lucozade Sport are provided at specific stations. These drinks help replenish electrolytes and provide carbohydrates, offering an energy boost.

Gels and Snacks:
Some stations also offer energy gels and snacks. These are designed to provide quick, easily digestible carbohydrates to sustain energy levels during the race.

Volunteers play a crucial role in the smooth operation of drink stations. They assist in handing out drinks, ensuring the stations are well-stocked, and maintaining order. Their support is vital for the event’s efficiency and success.

Drink stations are essential for runners’ well-being and performance, providing necessary hydration, energy, and support throughout the race. The careful planning and execution of these stations contribute significantly to the London Marathon’s overall success and safety.
