Virtual London Marathon 2021
After the success of the Virtual London Marathon 2020, the organisers have decided to hold the event again this year, so even more people can be part of this prestigious event.
Runners in the virtual Virgin Money London Marathon will have 23 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds to complete the 26.2 miles on the course of their choice. You can run half in the morning and half in the evening, or run the full marathon in one go, it’s your choice!
Join the 50,000 runners across the world taking part in this virtual event and be part of the biggest marathon ever staged anywhere in the world!
