In the men’s race, 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon champion Brent Lakatos of Canada also won the most prize money in the AWMM accumulator.

Lakatos won sprints two, three and four to earn $6,000 in total. His chosen charity to receive the same figure thanks to a donation from Abbott was also Wheelpower.

Marcel Hug, who finished third overall in the men’s race, won $4,000 by winning sprint one. His chosen charity was the Weir Archer Academy.

The Weir Archer Academy was created by eight-time London Marathon champion David Weir, who was runner-up in the 2020 race, and his coach Jenny Archer. Their ambition is to pass on their knowledge, experience, and enjoyment of the benefits of sport to the next generation of disabled people.

Wheelpower is the national charity for wheelchair sport based at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, the birthplace of the Paralympics. It provides opportunities for disabled people to play sport and lead healthy active lives.
