Marie-Véronique Antoinette Colette Jeannine Marot (born 16 September 1955 in Compiègne, France) is a former elite long distance runner from England, and a past winner of the London Marathon.

Marot became a British citizen in 1983, and first broke the British record in the 1985 Chicago Marathon (2:28:04). She won the 1989 London Marathon in 2.25.56, a time which stood as a British record for 13 years until beaten by Paula Radcliffe in 2002, and remains third on the UK all-time rankings.
