The company have added a train at 0640 from Banbury to Marylebone calling at Bicester North, Haddenham & Thame Parkway, High Wycombe, Beaconsfield and Gerrards Cross and a train at 0700 from Aylesbury to Marylebone calling at Princes Risborough, High Wycombe, Beaconsfield, Gerrards Cross, Denham and South Ruislip.

Jennifer Payne, Customer Service Director at Chiltern Railways said: “The London Marathon is a fantastic event which raises money for many worthy charities every year. To show our support, we are also offering those competing in the London Marathon two additional early services and a free return journey with us simply by presenting their official race day tabard.”
