London Marathon scaled down to elite only race

The mass participation London Marathon has been scaled down to an elite-only race, on a multi-lap, fan-free circuit, because of COVID-19.

The race which will feature Eliud Kipchoge and Kenenisa Bekele, will be held on Oct. 4, organisers said on Thursday.
The 2021 version of the race – held in March or April since it began in 1981 – will be held on Oct. 3.
The race, which normally attracts almost 40,000 runners and raises millions of pounds for charity, was originally postponed from April.
