Coronavirus Update

An update from the Virgin London Marathon team, 14/12/2020…

“We are fully planning for the event to go ahead in October next year, with social distancing in mind. As the event is still just over 10 months away this is not something that we can answer at the moment. Of course if anything were to change closer to the event, we will update you then with more information.”
