The London Marathon is returning this year as last year’s event was delayed from April to October and then held virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Chris has been participating in the event for the past seven years and in 2019 ran to help the Dementia Revolution.

Chris released a book earlier this year titled 119 Days to Go, which he released with the aim of helping people run their first marathon.

he told earlier The Sunday Times Magazine: ‘Why did I start running? Because God told me.

‘I didn’t even know that he/she/it and I were still on speaking terms, let alone willing to work together for some much needed midlife restoration.’

More than 40,000 people have taken to the streets of the UK capital to take part in the London Marathon, a year after the event was canceled due to coronavirus restrictions.

According to the Meteorological Department, the start of the race was dry, but the sky was expected to be cloudy, sunny and strong winds were expected.

Last year’s marathon was replaced by a virtual run where participants chose their own path and this year 40,000 more participants will earn their medals by participating in the virtual event.

Sunday’s outing was the first time the two events took place together.

Waking up early: Dr. Rangan Chatterjee got up at 5 a.m. to pick up his marathon number, getting ready to run with Chris and the Virgin Radio team.
