January 5, 2015 - Board of Deputies - Share: Twitter Facebook

The Board of Deputies is aware of reports that the 2016 London Marathon may clash with the second day of Pesach.

A Board spokesman said: “We have been in contact with the organisers today to seek clarification on this and have been told that there are a number of dates under consideration including 24 April 2016. We have communicated our concerns to the Race Director Hugh Brasher and are awaiting a response.

We very much hope that Jewish athletes, particularly those representing our charities, will be able to easily take part in this important annual event. “
