London Marathon chief executive Nick Bitel has said race organisers are "very concerned" by allegations in the Sunday Times that seven winners in a 12-year period recorded suspicious blood scores.
The newspaper has published fresh allegations following its analysis of drugs test data from 2001 to 2012.
It said the winners of 34 major marathons around the world - one in four - during the period should have faced censure or investigation because of their test results, with those athletes collecting more than £3million in prize money.
We believe there are people in our sport who are cheating and everyone has a part to play to protect those who are not.
We continue to be at the forefront of anti-doping measures for marathon runners as we are determined to make marathon running a safe haven from doping but we cannot do it all on our own and rely heavily on the IAAF.
We are therefore very concerned by the allegations made in the Sunday Times today and we will be discussing the implications of the allegations with the IAAF.
