  Celebrating the Clio and other radical Renaults Adorable footage shows three-year-old Harlem Chapman running through his high-intensity drills. At an age when toddlers may find joy in playing with playdough and puzzles, Harlem has already mastered advanced motor skills and understands the concept of intensity. Harlem, who is the oldest of two boys, picked up his skills by being around his father and other athletes. Harlem's father, Giles Chapman, is the founder and head trainer at Xclusive Speed in California. As an elite footwork guru, Giles develops athletes to reach their maximum potential. Giles profession clearly had an influence on little Harlem, who spent his days out on the field around his dad training older athletes. Speaking about Harlem, Giles said: "He loves to be out on the playing fields and do speed drills, just like the older athletes we train. "Harlem has a joyful spirit that can light up any room, his smile and laugh is pleasing to anyone that comes across his presence! "He knows how to spell his name and loves counting his numbers!" The footage was captured on September 4.

The event will aim to see 50,000 athletes take part in the traditional race along the famous course from Blackheath to the Mall on 3 October, with a further 50,000 runners taking part in a “virtual marathon” where participants can run anywhere in the world over the same 24-hour period.

Dual format

The proposed dual format follows the successful completion last October of a virtual marathon after the London mass participation race was twice cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic. The event saw more than 37,000 finishers and was declared by the Guinness Book of Records to be the single largest virtual marathon.

‘Humanity at its best’

He said that while it might be difficult for people to imagine now a mass event like a marathon taking place, organisers believed they could deliver an event to “show humanity at its best”.

He added: “And that’s what the London Marathon has done over the last 40 years and that’s absolutely what we hope to deliver on October 3 2021.”

Organisers said plans to socially distance runners had been made in 2020 before the event was made virtual only and technology had moved forward since then. Mr Brasher said:  “There’s still lots of unknowns. We do know that.”

Future years

Having 100,000 participants would make the 2021 London Virgin Marathon the biggest marathon ever staged anywhere in the world, although the New York marathon holds the record for the most finishers from the same start line with 53,640 in 2019.

Mr Brasher said that launching the virtual event last year had shown “a new path” for the London Marathon and he was “delighted” to announce a hybrid event for 2021 which was expected to continue in future years.
