Join the most inclusive marathon ever!

Whilst 50,000 runners are running the traditional Virgin Money London Marathon from Blackheath to The Mall on 3rd October, a further 50,000 runners in the virtual event will be running the same distance, just in a different place of their choosing!

The Virtual Virgin Money London Marathon will give participants the opportunity to take on the world’s greatest marathon over the course of 24 hours from 00:00:00 to 23:59:59, wherever they like, wherever they are on the planet – and will at the same time be part of an attempt to break a Guinness World Record!

All virtual runners will receive their running numbers before the event as well as their coveted official finisher medal and T-shirt post event! Sally Army runners will also all receive a team running vest and dedicated London Marathon rep to give you all the support you need!

There are two ways to get involved:

1. Apply for one of our charity places:

£20 registration fee with a £150 sponsorship pledge *

* + £10 for international entries to cover the costs of postage 

2. Join our team with your own place:

If you have secured your own place in the public entries we would love you to run for us

Fancy being a Guinness World Record holder?

The virtual Virgin Money London Marathon which was held for the first time in 2020, saw more than 37,000 runners, from all corners of the world, completing the race. The final finishing total of 37,966 means it has been awarded an official Guinness World Records title for the 'Most users to run a remote marathon in 24 hours'

The organisers want to smash this record in the 2021 race – and if they do, every runner will have the opportunity to claim their official world record certificate!
