London cash prize slashed

2020 London marathon prize money has been reduced by half due to the financial constraints brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic according to elite athletes Spencer Barden, winners will earn $55,000 less

“It wasn’t an easy decision, but what we’ve done this year is reduce the price structure for the international runners by almost 50% from previous years. However, we’ve also created a British-only place price structure this year – so the top three British athletes will have a prize solely for them.” said Barden.

The 40th edition of the marathon was initially scheduled to take place on April 26 but was postponed to Sunday October 4 due to the coronavirus outbreak. The race which will be staged in a secure biosphere in St. Jame’s Park will only feature elite runners.
