Bear and Lion Watch the 2015 London Marathon

 

It was the time of year again for the London Marathon, one of our favourite events in London. It was a chilly start this time around, but the rain held off so Bear and Lion, along with their friend, Longlegs, got to enjoy the sea of colour running through the streets of London.

The elite athletes always start the race off but it’s the costumes and normal runners which are most fun.
