Getting London Marathon-Ready, One Task at a Time

Running 26.2 Miles is no easy task. And neither is navigating a city hosting tens-of-thousands of athletes making the journey all at the same time this Sunday. That’s why Taskers are lending Londoners — runners or not — a helping hand.

This week, dozens of lucky marathoners across London have been treated to a touch of Tasker help in preparation for the big race, receiving goody bags of energy gel packs, lucozade and sweat bands.

But #thejoyofdone provided by Taskers doesn’t stop there. TaskRabbit is seeing a number of trending tasks booked by Londoners who are anticipating a hectic city leading up to and after the race. Tasks like “pick up last-minute gel packs for my sister,” “deliver a carb-loading meal on Saturday night” and “pack and deliver to me a marathon survival bag at the end of the race” are just a few tasks booked to help London Town get things done.

London, keep sharing your favorite tasks on twitter #thejoyofdone. And good luck on Sunday!
