I am writing to remind you about the Marathon road events which will be held in central London during the Games. Please remember that Olympic events will seriously hinder or ability to make deliveries to our customers and we would ask that you give us plenty of notice.
The following is taken from information released by TFL.
Don’t get caught out
Drivers are now advised to avoid driving in central London and around venues and also to be aware that Olympic Route Network (ORN) restrictions apply from Wednesday 25 July. On road event days, road closures will be in place from early morning and you will not be able to drive close to or across the race routes. If you intend to travel in the area, you are strongly advised to plan ahead. A number of bus routes will be on diversion.
Roads on and around the Olympic Marathon routes will close from 0300 and will reopen when it is safe to do so. Roads on and around the Paralympic Marathon route will close from midnight. The Olympic Route Network (ORN) will operate during these events. Some parts of the ORN will be closed and an alternative ORN route will be in place.

Sunday 5 and 12 August
The Women’s Marathon will take place in central London on Sunday 5 August and the Men's Marathon on Sunday 12 August. These will start and finish at The Mall, running through the City of London and Westminster.
On both days, Bank and Monument stations will be interchange only. There will be no exit or entry to or from street level; it will still be possible to change trains. St. Paul’s station will operate as exit only from Exit 1, which leads to Cheapside South.
Sunday 9 September
The Men’s and Women’s Paralympic Marathons will also take place in the same central London areas on Sunday 9 September.
