What is the 2019 London Marathon prize money, how much does the winner get and who has won the race in previous years?

THE amateurs could be in power for another October 2 London Marathon.

But for the pros, it’s a race that pays their bills and can mean the difference of a lifetime’s earnings.

Here’s all the info on how much the top runners make when they complete the 26.2-mile route around the British capital.

What is the prize money of the London Marathon 2022?

The prize money will be in US dollars, which is something to be happy about for runners given last week’s sterling plunge.

The cash prizes are the same for men and women.

12th – $1,000

11th – $1,500

10th – $2,000

9th – $3,000

8th – $4,000

7th – $5,000

6th – $7,500

5th – $10,000

4th – $15,000

3rd – $22,500

2nd – $30,000

1st – $55,000

What other London Marathon prizes are there?

Any runner in the men’s race who clocks a time under 2:02.00 is eligible for a $150,000 share.

That goes to $100,000 for under 2:03.00, $75,000 for under 2:04.00 and $50,000 for under 2:05.

The same goes for women who run under 2:17.30, where there is a $150,000 cash prize.

Then $100,000 for everyone under 2:18, $75,000 for under 2:19 and $50,000 for under 2:20.
