This Sunday the train operator is putting on an extra early morning train from Milton Keynes Central to Euston for Marathon goers. And football benefit from extra stops at Wembley Central on both Saturday and Sunday, for the FA Cup semi-finals.

London Midland’s head of West Coast services, Steve Helfet, said “We want to make it as simple as possible for people to travel and enjoy this sporting weekend. Having used the first service on London Marathon day in the past as a customer, I know that having a bit more time to get to the start will help runners relax on their big day.

“That’s why we’ve planned an earlier service than normal into London this Sunday. I hope it makes the day simpler and easier for them. Good luck with the 26 miles!”

Milton Keynes Central 06:12

Bletchley 06:17

Leighton Buzzard 06:23

Berkhamsted 06:39
