What is the Virtual London Marathon 2021?

Join a virtual crowd of 50,000 people who are taking part in the Virtual London Marathon 2021.

Take part from anywhere in the world on a run in your local community!

Use the official Virgin Money London Marathon App to log your run. The app will also enable you to enjoy the race-day atmosphere with crowd noises, commentary, and more.

All finishers receive a medal and official London Marathon t-shirt.

When is it?

The Virtual London Marathon 2021 takes place on Sunday 3 October 2021, on the same day as the traditional event.

To finish the event, you need to run 26.2 miles between 00:00 and 23:59:59 on that day.

Where can I run?

You can run anywhere you like so long as you are outdoors! Perhaps in your local park, around your local community – you choose!

The App will only work if you run at least 50m before changing direction – so you can’t run on a treadmill or round and round your garden!

Is there a fundraising commitment?

Join #TeamBrake and fundraise to support Brake's working caring for crash victims and campaigning for safe and healthy journeys for everyone.

There is a £25 registration fee and then a commitment to raise £300 in sponsorship.

Places are limited. Sign up today to join #TeamBrake and guarantee your place!
