This map shows the average property prices along the London Marathon route

You may be aware that there's a tiny, insignificant sporting event happening this weekend, when around 36,000 people will lace up their running shoes and pound London's pavements for a whopping 26.2 miles. In honour of the London Marathon, online estate agent House Simple has made a map showing all the average property prices along the race route. Spoiler alert: buying a house is really expensive. 

Unsurprisingly, the priciest properties are in St James’s at an average of almost £2.5 million, while the cheapest options (which are still really expensive unless you're sitting on a secret goldmine) are in Woolwich at £314,446. The research shows that the average house price along the route is £712,416, which has increased by more than 15 percent since last year. Yay.

Want more cool maps? TfL has made a Shakespearean tube map to mark 400 years since his death.

And this tube map shows how unaffordable renting in London is.
