Update: Covid-19

Coronavirus (Covid-19) continues to dominate the news and we should all be united in doing everything possible to prevent its continued spread.

I did receive an email yesterday from the organisers of the Greater Manchester Marathon to say it was preparing, business as usual, for the race to go ahead on 5 April. I am continuing to train with the expectation of running.

I am due to run in three events next month (Manchester, Boston & London) and I would not, even for a second, disagree with race organisers / authorities if these were postponed. This would, of course, impact on the #20in2020 campaign but some things in life are more important.

Watch this space for updates.
