London Marathon

27 August 2020

Following World Athletics lifting their suspension of the Tokyo Olympic qualification period from the 1st September – 30th November for the marathon, UK Athletics has been asked to notify the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) of any athletes who plan to attempt to achieve an Olympic qualifying mark during this timeframe.

Therefore if you are planning to run a marathon between 1st September – 30th November, please can you email Charlie Burn (cburn@britishathletics.org.uk) as soon as possible with the following information:

  • Race Name
  • Venue
  • Date


UK Athletics must notify the AIU by the end of August for all events which take place in September and six weeks prior to the events which take place in October and November.

If you are running London Marathon on 4th October and appear on the following start lists (Elite Men, Elite Women) then your details have already been submitted to the AIU.
