The online ordering website for the #oneinamillion T-shirts is now live!
Every finisher in the history of the London Marathon can now order a special #oneinamillion edition T-shirt printed with their unique #oneinamillion finisher number.
A database of finishers has been created which involved manually inputting 20 years of historical results data and merging that with the results from 2001 – 2015. All #oneinamillion runners will be able to search the database by the year they ran to find their #oneinamillion finisher number.
Dick Beardlsey and Inge Simonsen, joint winners of the first London Marathon in 1981 will have the number #oneinamillion 1. There were 6255 finishers in the first year so the 1982 men’s champion Hugh Jones, the first British male winner, is #oneinamillion 6256.
Runners in the 2016 Virgin Money London Marathon will be able to order their unique #oneinamillion edition T-shirt after this year’s race.
All profits from the special edition T-shirts will go to the London Marathon Charitable Trust to fund sports facilities in London and other areas.

We want to celebrate every member of the London Marathon family
This is about every single runner who has ever run the event, from club runners to our champions and world record holders, from the charity runners who have raised so many millions for good causes to first-timers.
Twenty years of historical results from different sources were manually inputted and merged with the electronic results from 2001 – 2015. If you are unable to find your result on the #oneinamillion T-shirt database, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
