The London Marathon doesn’t just happen on land!  There is also the London Kayakathon, where kayakers take to the Thames to complete a marathon distance on water.  The flotilla leaves from Shadwell Basin and paddles upriver to Chiswick before returning back through the city.  It is a truly exciting day out on the water, especially paddling past all of the famous London landmarks such as Tower Bridge, Big Ben and the London Eye.  The event is suitable for experienced kayakers only, who will need to register at
