About The London Classics
The London Classics was created by London Marathon Events in 2017 and is one of the world’s greatest mass participation challenges.
The London Classics requires participants to complete the London Marathon, the RideLondon-Surrey 100 and the two-mile event at Swim Serpentine. The events can be done in any order over any time period.
Everyone who completes the three events receives the magnificent London Classics medal, engraved with the words Et Ego Londinium Vici (I too have conquered London) and is listed in the Hall of Fame.
How to complete the London Classics
The London Classics comprises three of the world’s most iconic mass participation events. To be awarded a London Classics medal, participants must run the famous 26.2 miles of the London Marathon, cycle the spectacular 100 miles of the RideLondon-Surrey 100 and complete the two-mile swim at Swim Serpentine in the beautiful setting of Hyde Park.
The events can be completed in any order over any time period. The London Classics medal is awarded to participants in a special area after the finish of their third event.
