Marathon runners travelling from Oxford can do so for free by simply showing their race number, certificate, or badge to the Oxford Tube driver as they board the coach.
The Oxford Tube runs up to every 12-15 minutes, 24 hours a day, offering plenty of flexibility to those taking part in the marathon. Runners will also experience a comfortable journey with all Oxford Tube coaches benefiting from free 4G Wi-Fi, USB power sockets, individual tables, and footrests, which will be perfect for tired legs.
Rachel Geliamassi, Managing Director at Stagecoach West and Oxford Tube, comments: “The London Marathon is one of the world’s most iconic running events and it’s fantastic to have it back to full capacity for 2021. Everyone has their own reasons for running and after a tough year, it’s even more important that we all do what we can to encourage people to reach their own personal goals. We at Stagecoach want to show our support for London Marathon runners in Oxfordshire, and what better way to do so than by providing them with an easy and comfortable way to get to and from London for free.
“We’d like to wish everyone from Oxfordshire all the best for the race – we’ll certainly be watching!”
Oxford Tube advises London Marathon runners using its services to allow plenty of time to get to the start line. There are three assembly points for 2021 which are all accessible from Victoria Station via rail and London Underground services.
Free travel is only valid on 2nd and 3rd October to get to and from the race. Runners should check the TfL website before they travel.
