The average Marathon runner will burn between 2,900 and 3,500 calories as they negotiate the 26.3 mile Virgin London Marathon course on 24 April 2016.  With energy levels low, runners will need to recharge their batteries with a lunch of champions. 

To help replenish their depleted fuel tanks, the Royal China Group will be offering competitors a free dim sum dish, when dining in one of their six London restaurants on the day of the Marathon.  Diners simply need to present their Marathon medal to a member of staff on arrival at the restaurant. 

And don’t worry about undoing all your good work! Dim Sum dishes are often steamed or baked and so have many nutritional benefits.  Diners can choose between favourites such as Cheung Fun (Rice noodle rolls) with peanut sauce, Seamed prawn and Chive dumplings and Honey roast pork puffs
