The inaugural AbbottWMM Wanda Age Group World Championship race was due to be held as part of the 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon. The cancellation of the mass race due to the COVID-19 pandemic means this inaugural event will now take place as part of the 2021 Virgin Money London Marathon on Sunday October 3.

All participants who did not withdraw from the event following the postponement of the April race were given the opportunity to take part in 2021 or withdraw and receive a refund. The deadline for this decision to be made by all runners was 18th September 2020.

In addition, runners in qualifying positions at the end of the second edition of the rankings - which ends on 31st December 2020 - will also be given the chance to enter the 2021 World Championships.
