After months of preparation, the London Marathon 2022 took place, thousands of runners crossed the finish line and thousands raised for charity.
Now that runners are taking a brief break from their rigorous preparation routines, they will look to the future for the 2023 race.
However, the gap between the two is much shorter than most years now that the traditional April day is officially back.
It’s a known fact that the marathon has been a spring event for 39 years.
In recent years, however, the iconic event has swapped its spring date for a fall date in October, with the 2022 date being no different.
The spring date has been postponed due to the knock-on effect caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
As event director of the marathon, Hugh Brasher said back in August 2021 when the Date October got introduced.
But now the traditional date of spring is returning.
When will the 2023 London Marathon take place?
The 2023 London marathon will take place in April, as Mr Brasher announced: “We will return to our traditional place on the calendar in 2023 when the TCS London marathon will take place on Sunday April 23.”
The ballots for the marathon are already open, you can participate via the London Marathon website.
However, entries are randomly selected so there is no guarantee you will get a spot, but you can increase your chances by donating your entry fee.
