11 October 2020 should’ve been a big day in the running calendar, with both Chicago & the postponed Manchester marathons taking place.
But, sadly & perhaps unsurprisingly, both have been cancelled this week.
2 more big marathons bite the dust.
London is now the only “major” race left standing this year, but I cannot imagine, realistically, that the UK would allow it to take place, in early October…would they?
I couldn’t quite figure out what this meant (below) on the Manchester Marathon website – how do you apply social distancing rules in a race?
What a year.
And since no one really knows how long this terrible pandemic will last, we could be looking at no races for a long time to come…
Just as well I enjoy solo running.
And I am STILL trying to work out how you could socially distance a scene like this…
