2021 will mark the City of Gothenburg turning 400. The Göteborg Athletic Association is celebrating by launching a brand new, totally one-off marathon. Welcome to the Göteborgsvarvet Marathon, a once-in-a-lifetime event.
This time next week Mo Farah will be stepping out on the track in a “competitive” capacity once more. Not since he won the 5,000 meters at the 2017 Diamond League event in Zurich has the 10-time gold medallist raced on a track at a professional event.
If the past few months have shown us anything, it’s that we still have an appetite for activity. Event organisers and charities have been quick to switch from their usual format of real world events to virtual versions.
Well it has been a long wait for the news and we probably could guess the outcome. However, it looks like a viable solution has been decided on and we get a race, a sensible offer to the runners and we keep safe.
