If you run on Sunday, you can get these freebies as a reward!
Rather you than me, to be honest. Still, if you’re motivated/crazy enough to run that far, you deserve all the rewards you can get. Handily, a load of London pubs and restaurants are giving away freebies to ease the pain of your tired legs. Show them your finisher’s medal, and reap the delicious rewards from these places…
Stevie Parle’s hot new Italian restaurant is renowned for their handmade fresh pasta, and you can get a full plate of the good stuff on Sunday. Buongiorno, freebies!
It’s not as good as their offer last year, when you could get a free roast dinner and pint, but we won’t refuse. Mr Fogg’s are offering a free glass of punch when you order a Sunday roast, and it’s fair to say you’ve never deserved a roast as much as you do today.
3. by Chloe
Vegans needn’t miss out on the marathon freebies. Hot new vegan spot by Chloe encourage you to carbo-load for free, with their vegan pasta options, and their cinnamon espresso cookies.
4. Franco Manca
Fresh from announcing their new range of gluten-free pizzas, the beloved pizza chain are offering more free stuff. Expect this time, it’s free free. Present your medal and get a pizza on them, on Sunday and Monday.
Freebies with a side of tunes at this one. With locations in Camden, Shoreditch, and Brixton, you’ve got plenty of options wherever you’re heading home to. They’ll give you a cheeseburger, spicy chicken sandwich, or Creole bean burger, free of charge.
If sushi was the only thing keeping you going during the run, you’ll love this. Popular Japanese joint Kurobuta have put their tuna sashimi pizza up for free, along with a glass of wine, Asahi beer, or kombucha.
7. Mac and Wild
Sometimes, a big ol’ burger is the only thing that can replenish all those lost calories, and this is a big ‘un. Mac and Wilds’ Veni-Moo is a beef patty and a venison patty, topped with cheese, Bearnaise sauce, and caramelised onions. That’ll do nicely.
8. Bunga Bunga
Battersea-bound runners should make for Bunga Bunga, where the bonkers Berlusconi-themed restaurant will give finishers a free sourdough pizza.
9. Honi Poké
It isn’t just about ruining your body with meat and cheese. Poké is very on trend right now, and Honi will give you a free bowl of their finest, filled with rice, veg, and your choice of fish, chicken, tofu, or for the adventurous amongst you, octopus.
They aren’t offering one free item, but that medal will come in handy nonetheless. Parties of up to six can get 25% off the bill if one of them presents a medal. So you can reap the benefits even if you didn’t actually run!
Maxwell’s is great for runners, who get a free burger or veggie burger when flashing their medal. But it’s also pretty sweet for the under-heralded marathon volunteers, who get a 25% discount on all food on Sunday.
