The virtual Virgin London Marathon is returning this year, giving runners the opportunity to take on the world’s greatest marathon on the course of their choice from 00:00:00 to 23:59:59. This is an amazing chance to complete the iconic marathon your way, you can separate the miles over the period of 24 hours into manageable blocks or run the entire distance in one go. You could invite friends and family to run with and support you.

Runners in the virtual event will join a record 50,000 participants who will run the traditional Virgin London Marathon from Blackheath to The Mall.

The virtual Virgin London Marathon was held for the first time in 2020, when more than 37,000 runners completed the race. We were lucky to have some lovely and passionate runners who took part last year supporting us and raising awareness. They really loved the chance to run the marathon and receive their iconic V40 medals, see George’s story for how he found the experience.
