There's no doubting that the Virgin Money London Marathon was by far the biggest event of the sporting weekend, with 38,000 people of all shapes, sizes and abilities out covering the 26.2 miles around the streets of London.

We've got VERY (!) extensive coverage of the event on our sister site www.run247.com

Here are a few (email via editor@tri247.com if we've missed any), triathlete-related names, past or present, who we've spotted towards the front end of the results lists in the 2015 edition. No doubt we've missed a few, so do get in touch if you've spotted anyone we should add in.

Twice Olympic rowing gold medal winner and regular triathlon/duathlon competitor, Cracknell is not built to be a distance runner and it is fair to say his running style isn't the most graceful, but none of that matters when you can still produce a 2:50. Impressive.
