The average house price along the route for Sunday's London Marathon is now just shy of £700,000, according to new figures.

Homes along the route will set you back £695,255, figures from online estate agent Emoov suggested.

The cheapest option along the route is in Woolwich, where the average price is £328,866. Meanwhile, the most expensive part of the route is St James, where new digs come with a £1.6m price tag.

To be fair, that figure has fallen since 2015, when St James had runners sweating at the prospect of average house prices of £2m plus.

Woolwich was one of the few areas in London with prices under £300,000 in 2015: at the time, the average home in the area was priced at £295,266.

London house price growth has slowed dramatically in recent months, but in some parts of the capital, growth is still in the double digits. Figures published earlier this week by JLL suggested house price growth in parts of Greenwich, where the race begins and ends, is over 21 per cent, while in the Isle of Dogs it's as high as nine per cent.

As runners progress along the route, growth dips - in the City, growth is flat, the figures showed, while in St James, it's around three per cent.

"The London Marathon is a celebration of London itself and with the route spanning far and wide across the capital, runners will take in the very best of what the city has to offer," said Emoov chief executive Russell Quirk.

"This includes the type of property on the market and our research shows how the price of London homeownership varies across the route, as well as where aspiring buyers can still find a bargain that offers a good view of Sunday's race."
