This year’s London Marathon is set to break new ground with a record 50,000 runners expected to tackle the course on the city’s streets while another 50,000 compete in a remote race “wherever they are on the planet”.
The virtual London Marathon was held for the first time last year after the actual race was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Nearly 38,000 runners took part to set a Guinness World Record for the most in a remote marathon.
