London Marathon 2020

The 2020 London Marathon has become another victim of the Covid 19 Pandemic.  This event, however, has already rearranged and set a new date for the race.

If the pandemic is over the London Marathon will take on Sunday October the 4th.

The event was postponed before BBC London had finalised plans so I can’t tell you what the plan was for the BBC Bus and Radio London however in past years we have been based on the isle of dogs with a presenter and a few reports and we have anchored the show from there.

Coventry 1/2 Marathon 2020 - BBC CWR

This years Coventry 1/2 Marathon is another event that has been cancelled due to the Covid 19 pandemic.   BBC CWR where due to broadcast from the event that has full BBC backing as they did in the 2019 event.

Coventry is looking forward to being U.K. City of Culture 2021 and postponing of any event in the run up to 2021 is a big disappointment to the city.   With the advice coming from health experts to cancel large events however the 1/2 marathon was always going to be called off.

This is what we got up to last year.
