London Marathon To Hold In October

Shura Kitata won the men’s elite race in 2020, while Brigid Kosgei defended her women’s title, with the absence of crowds or fun runners due to the coronavirus pandemic.

It has been reported that the London marathon will hold on the 2nd of October.

This is in contrary to its original date which was in April.

Event director Hugh Brasher confirmed the race has been moved to allow for the “best chances” of a full-capacity event, including crowds.

Shura Kitata won the men’s elite race in 2020, while Brigid Kosgei defended her women’s title, with the absence of crowds or fun runners due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“The London Marathon is an extraordinary and unique celebration of the family of humankind coming together,” said Brasher. “We believe that by moving the 2022 event to October we give ourselves the best chances of welcoming the world to the streets of London.”

The 2021 event will take place on 3 October and is set to be the largest marathon staged in the world, with an estimated number of 50,000 runners on the traditional course and up to 50,000 participants completing the 26.2 miles on a course of their choice.

The 2023 London Marathon has been confirmed in its original slot in the calendar and will take place on Sunday, 23 April.
