Sunday 17th April saw the 2011 Virgin London Marathon. As in previous years I ventured out with my kit bag to shoot the event. This year’s plan took me from Charlton to Mudchute on the Isle of Dogs, then to Poplar High Street and Limehouse, and on Westminster bridge.

This year, thanks to my new Android phone, I was able to (partially) record the route I took and plot it on a Google map. The photos are here and the map is below.

Blue lines were recorded automatically by the My Tracks application from GPS, grey lines are times when there was no GPS signal because I was below ground, and red lines complete the route after my battery ran out (and for some reason in the gap around the University of Greenwich, perhaps because of the BBC’s OB trucks in that area).
