The event, which will be held anyway in the week between 3 and 10 January 2021 will therefore see the hosts connect with the runners from home, without therefore the classic "sofa" to which the event had accustomed us for years.
The Summer Games Done Quick was also held on last month took place online, but that didn't stop the enthusiasm and generosity of the spectators, as over $ 2.3 million was raised for Doctors Without Borders during the past event.
