London Marathon: Were you due to run? What activity is filling the void?

This Sunday thousands of runners should have been taking part in the 40th London Marathon.

Normally, it would have marked the end of months of hard winter training and in the process raised millions of pounds for charities.

But because of coronavirus the event has been postponed until 4 October, leaving a big gap in the running calendar and charities’ finances.

Were you due to run? Do you still have plans for the day? Have you discovered any interesting ways to keep fit during lockdown? We want you to tell us about it.

Organisers of the UK’s major mass-participation events – including the London Marathon – have launched a campaign to help charities raise money and keep the public fit.

The 2.6 Challenge is intended to inspire people to create their own athletic activities based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 – and raise money through sponsorship and donations.
