The virtual Virgin Money London Marathon will return this year, giving participants the opportunity to take on the world’s greatest marathon on the course of their choice from 00:00:00 to 23:59:59BST, wherever they are in the world.

The Virgin Money London Marathon is the largest annual one-day fundraising event on the planet and it’s now set to be even bigger with a chance for people to complete their marathon challenge locally through this virtual offering.

While the Official Virgin Money London Marathon App, powered by TCS, will allow all participants to track and log their 26.2 miles, its special features will really help bring the virtual experience to life, with an exclusive audio commentary featuring famous voices providing a memorable soundtrack to the day. All virtual runners will receive an official running number and Action for Children running vest in the post before the event as well as the coveted official finisher medal and New Balance T-shirt after the event!

We ask for a £20 registration fee, which goes towards covering the cost of your place.

We also ask for £260 minimum sponsorship. That’s just £10 per mile! The money you raise will support vulnerable children, young people, and their families across the UK.

Why take part?

  • You’ll receive an Action for Children running vest and official running number to wear on race day
  • Official London Marathon finishers medal and New Balance finisher’s t-shirt after you’ve completed the challenge
  • A dedicated support team will be on hand to help aid you in your fundraising
  • An opportunity to join the Team Action for Children community via our exclusive Strava and Facebook group
  • Monthly emails containing training tips and news about Action for Children

  • Get dropped 26.2 miles from home and run back to a hero’s welcome
  • Complete each mile with a different running buddy, sharing the challenge with friends and family
  • Get together with a group of friends to walk the 26.2 miles together
  • Create a unique course that visits the homes of friends and family so they can set up outdoor drinks stations for a refuel and catch-up over an energy bar
