London Marathon decision deadline pushed back to August 7

A decision on when this year’s London Marathon can be held has been pushed back to August 7.

An announcement had been expected on Tuesday July 28 on whether a socially distanced Virgin Money London Marathon could be held on Sunday October 4, however London Marathon Events has delayed the decision.

In a letter sent from event director Hugh Brasher to all the participants it said that the delay was due to a need for further consultation with local NHS Trusts, the emergency services and local authorities.

Brasher said: “I realise that this uncertainty is far from ideal and I would like to thank you for your patience and understanding in these very challenging circumstances.

“We know how important the Virgin Money London Marathon is to you, to charities and in showing the world the wonderful spirit of London, of Great Britain and of our running community.
