Race director plans to step down in 2013.
David Bedford, former 10,000-meter world record holder, has announced that in 2013 he plans to step down as race director of the London Marathon–a post he’s held since 1985.
“By 2013 there will be a new race director if it all goes well,” he told insidethegames.biz over the weekend. “I don’t want to work at the incredibly hard pace that I do now for the rest of my life so it seems sensible to plan your own demise.”
Bedford has already started the search for his replacement and hopes to have a successor for his position in training by race weekend next April.
