October 4, 2020 - El 40º Maratón de Londres para corredores de élite se realizará solo dentro de una “biosfera segura” alrededor de St James’s Park, dada la pandemia de Covid-19. Los atletas correrán 19 vueltas en el sentido de las manecillas del reloj sobre una ruta de 2,15km que pasa por Horse Guards Parade y el Palacio de Buckingham, con un final tradicional en The Mall.

Three separate races will be held for elite men, elite women and wheelchair racers. The men’s field is led by two greats of distance running, with Eliud Kipchoge -- who holds the current marathon World Record -- and 2019 Berlin champion Kenenisa Bekele going head-to-head in a compelling title battle.

In the women’s race, world record-holder and defending champion Brigid Kosgei will face tough competition from compatriot and 2019 World Champion Ruth Chepngetich.

Both Daniel Romanchuk and Manuela Schär will defend their wheelchair titles.

The race also features Sir Mo Farah acting as pacemaker for athletes chasing competitive times for coveted qualification places at the delayed Tokyo Olympics in 2021.
