Manchester cancels

The Manchester Marathon (GBR), which had previously been re-scheduled from April to Sunday 11 October, has been cancelled. The next event will take place on Sunday 11 April 2021.

Manchester was due to take place one week after the rescheduled London Marathon which is still listed to go ahead on 4 October despite the cancellation of nearly all major marathons up to and beyond that date including four of the six “World Marathon Majors”. The only WMM event to have been held this year was the Tokyo Marathon on 8 March but it was restricted to an elite field only.
