London Marathon race director encourages entrants to join "most inclusive race" ever

The London Marathon's race director says the delayed 2020 race could be the most "inclusive" in history, as 45,000 entrants are encouraged to take part in the postponed race virtually. The marathon was postponed from its usual April date to October when the UK entered lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Elite athletes including Eliud Kipchoge, Kenenisa Bekele, Brigid Kosgei, David Weir and Manuela Schar will participate in a closed marathon in St James's Park under biosecure conditions.
