+The Lavender Hill Mob Posted November 21, 2007 Share Posted November 21, 2007 So that the Monarch didnt have to shift his backside from his seat to the finishing line.The finishing line came to him. Ding! Close enough. In 1908 London Olympics the Marathon started outside Windsor Castle where one half of the Royal family were seated to watch the start, the other half were seated at White City stadium to see the finish, the total distance was 26 miles 385 yards and it's never been changed back!
