London Events: What’s Happening Near Our Roman Road Store

A lot is happening in the current months in the area surrounding our Roman Road store based in Bow, London. Check out our handy guide below to some of the most interesting and local events that are planned.

 London Marathon

“Focus on how far you’ve come, not how far you have to go!”

 The essential thing in life is not so much conquering as fighting well.”-Baron De Coubertin, founder of the modern Olympic Games.

 Starting just a stone’s throw away from Bow over in the Isle of Dogs, the London Marathon will be taking place this weekend on the 13th April 2014. The London Marathon joins celebrities, professional runners and normal participants together in one race stretching across (miles).

Year after year, the London Marathon proves to be very rewarding-due to the achievement of completing the long running route whilst also raising plenty of money for a variety of charities.

Gain more information on the London Marathon by visiting the official website: http://www.virginmoneylondonmarathon.com/

 World Cup

Scheduled to take place in Brazil from the 12th June until the 13th July 2014, the World Cup will present a whopping 64 games of football featuring qualifying countries from around the world.

Whilst the actual World Cup action will be taking place in Brazil, there are still plenty of events happening back in London, including match screenings in some of the best local pubs in the area surrounding our store.

Here’s a list of some of the best rated pubs that will be airing the World Cup matches in June and July: http://www.matchpint.co.uk/best-pubs-for-football

Only time will tell, but no doubt there are plenty of us eager to cheer on our British cyclists at the finish line!

A live web cam is due to go up on the site soon. Be sure to book mark it so you can pop back to get your daily dose of cat goodness, as let’s face it; us internet users definitely love a good cat video or two!
