Favourite part of the course:

The finish! It’s a great finish because of the backdrop of Buckingham Palace, all the British flags and the huge crowd there – it’s the best race finish in the world by far.

Another point I like is Tower Bridge. You’ve got to climb Tower Bridge, then you come back on yourself and you know you’re almost halfway through.

Top tip for beginners:

Pace yourself and don’t go off too quick. Do what you did in training, make sure you’re timing yourself and not going too quickly in the first half, or the second half will be pretty tough.
