𝗥𝗘𝗔𝗗 𝗧𝗛𝗘𝗠 𝗔𝗡𝗗 𝗨𝗡𝗗𝗘𝗥𝗦𝗧𝗔𝗡𝗗 𝗧𝗛𝗘𝗠! 😉Some helpful instructions before voting results for the Virgin Money London Marathon 2021 on Monday # LondonMarathon BildTwittercom / 3n3x7JsR9X

Those who took part in the vote will know their fate online for the first time, as opposed to the usual method by mail

For the virtual marathon that takes place on the same day, 50000 additional places available

The virtual marathon gives runners the opportunity to get the same medal and t-shirt as they did on the actual route at 262 miles within a 24-hour timeframe

The London Marathon 2020 was postponed from April to October and only elite participants were able to participate due to the coronavirus pandemic

The impact of the pandemic has also made this year’s London Marathon the key to fundraising for nonprofits

Macmillan Cancer Support was named Charity of the Year, and Claire Rowney, director of the fundraising charity, highlighted the importance of the event

She told The Daily Echo, “The Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on our incomes at a time when more than ever people with cancer need our help to cope with this anxious time.

“The important donations raised by runners and supporters of this year’s event will help us continue to do everything we can to be there for all people with cancer”

Event Director Hugh Brasher added, “We know there will be a lot of people celebrating today, but we also know there will be many more who unfortunately didn’t succeed in the vote

“Unsuccessful runners can sign up for a charity or our Virgin Money London virtual marathon that promises to be another amazing day in our history”
