London Marathon 2021 is set to take place on 3 October and to be the biggest marathon staged.

Event director Hugh Brasher said “With a national vaccination programme underway, we hope to see an unprecedented 100,000 people take part in this year’s Virgin Money London Marathon on Sunday 3 October”.

A record 50,000 number of people on the course and another 50,000 people to complete the 26.2 miles virtually using a tracking app.
