Regardless of where, who or how you were following the London Marathon you would be hard pressed not to feel a little inspired to take part and if that’s the case then you’ll be pleased to know that the ballot for next year’s race is already open!
So Sunday is looming large, the week has been and gone, and all preparations should be in their final stages. It’s the fifth and final day of our London Marathon Elite Preview and today we’ve got a few of the British contingent for you.
It’s day 3 of our London Marathon elite preview and it’s time to focus on a pair certified distance running icons, each boasting careers of 20 years as professional runners – Kenenisa Bekele and Vivian Cheruiyot.
Not long after we’d written about 21-year-old Degitu Azimeraw in our Day 2 Elite Preview earlier this afternoon London Marathon race director Hugh Brasher announced that the young Ethiopian runner had been ruled out of the race after testing positive for Covid-19.
Day 2 of our London Marathon Elite Preview sees us take a look at two teammates on the famed NN Running Team (no not those two! We’ll get to them in good time) Degitu Azimeraw and, last year’s 3rd place finisher in London, Mule Wasihun.
