The only Wanda World marathon major that has been held in 2020 was Tokyo and it was an elite event only! I hope London can come up with something, but it will not be the London marathon. The race would be an lesser version of past London Marathons. How can London even happen? Makes no sense! 41,000 Brits have died so far, and while things are getting better, it sure is not back to the pre Covid 19 days.
I just do not get it. The Great North run just cancelled it’s 2020 event, so how in God’s creation can Hugh Brasher hold a 2020 London marathon?
London Marathon with innovative ways
LONDON (GBR): London Marathon race director Hugh Brasher has said the race organisers are “coming up with innovative ways” in an attempt to allow the reschedule event on 4 October to go ahead, informs AW. “The team at London Marathon Events has been looking at the logistics of the Virgin Money London Marathon and coming up with innovative ways to socially distance the event. We have also been working with other mass participation event organisers in the UK, including The Great Run Company and Human Race, to make recommendations to the UK Government on how mass participation events can return,” he said.
