Not Necessarily The ‘London’ Marathon – Your Run, Your Way

8th August 2021
The London Marathon is HUGE but you don't have to go to London to be a part of one of the biggest sporting fixtures in the world. We still have a couple of 'virtual' places available and we'd love you to join our team.
The virtual 2021 Virgin Money London Marathon will take place on Sunday 3 October and participants will have 23 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds (from 00:00:00 to 23:59:59 BST) to complete the distance, which you can choose to run, walk or jog – participants of all abilities are welcome, you just have to be over 18.
In addition, those taking part in the virtual 2021 Virgin Money London Marathon will be able to be creative with the challenge that lies ahead – something that’s emphasised by the event strapline: Your Run, Your Way.
Ideas for personalising the virtual experience include:
• Being dropped 26.2 miles from home and running back to a hero’s welcome
• Completing each mile with a different running buddy, sharing the challenge with friends and family
• Getting together with a group of friends to walk the 26.2 miles together
• Creating 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.
So why not take part, join our team and help thousands of children living in poverty here in Manchester and Salford. You'll still get a finishers medal and we'll send you a t-shirt too.
If you'd like to join our team please get in touch with as soon as possible as the deadline is 16th September.
