THE LONDON MARATHON IS COMING. GET PREPARED!

THE LONDON MARATHON IS COMING… HOW ARE YOU GETTING READY?

152 days and 21 hours left, how are you preparing for the London Marathon?

If you’ve never heard about it, the London Marathon is a long-distance running event held in London, and is the third largest running event in the UK. It is set over a largely flat course around the River Thames and spans 42.195 kilometres.

The London Marathon is also part of the World Marathon Majors, which is a championship-style competition for marathon runners that started in 2006. But what makes this event even more special, is that it is the largest annual one day fundraising event in the world.

First held in 1981, the London Marathon is now at its 35th edition due to take place on 26 April 2015. Many runners have already started their training, and whether you’re a new or experienced runner, here at Case-Mate we know how your phone can be helpful in getting prepared for the big race: checking the times, listening to music, counting the kilometres… So why not prepare yourself with a highly protective but stylish case?


If you really want to showcase your style with a stylish case during the long hours of training, you can’t afford to miss the Tough and Tough Air Case-Mate Collection.
