Stars back The 2.6 Challenge

One of the founding pillars of the London Marathon was ‘to show how the family of mankind can be united’. We hope The 2.6 Challenge, which starts on the day our 40th Race should have taken place, will embody that spirit

Hugh Brasher

Co-Chair of MSO and Event Director of London Marathon Events
