I think most people know what the London Marathon is like (either from experience or reading about it) - do we really need squillions of reviews on it, which will no doubt all be saying pretty much the same thing?
Surely reviews are only useful if they tell you something you didn't know?
A review is definitely necessary. If you are not interested, do not read it. I for one have put in lots of hours and miles preparing for it and would like to know how others have got on and if they agree that Canary Wharf was difficult with the crowd encroaching on the road to narrow what is already a tight bit of the route. This could be looked at for future runnings.
The Events on RW (and consequently the ability to add a Review), are not posted by Runners World but by the event organisers themselves, essentially in order to promote their event..... not really something VLM needs to do !
Edited to say - I'm sure, if you want to pass on comments, feedback, thanks etc, there is probably the means to do so via the VLM website.
If you're desperate to then you can do so here
BTW, RW does have a search function
The London Marathon has not added its event to Runner's World Event system. That's way its not there for you to review.
Edit: ...as Juliefrazz has said already!

Juliefrazz and Kryten are absolutely right - it is the event organisers who add events to RW listings, rather than the RW team.
However, we figured that lots of you would like to review yesterday's VLM, so here's a link we've set up: http://www.runnersworld.co.uk/events/viewevent.asp?sp=&v=2&EN=63161&ms=
