The virtual 2021 Virgin Money London Marathon – Run for Light!

The 2021 Virgin Money London Marathon is taking place on Sunday 3 October, with a record 50,000 participants running on the streets of the capital, from Blackheath to The Mall.

On the same day, an additional 50,000 people will have the chance to take on the world’s greatest marathon on the course of their choice from 00:00:00 to 23:59:59 BST, wherever they are on the planet – building on the success of the first-ever virtual London Marathon last year.

Together, these participants will make history by creating the world’s first 100,000-person marathon – would you like to be one of them?

We are very fortunate to have been allocated three charity places in the virtual 2021 Virgin Money London Marathon. This means that runners can complete the distance here in Yorkshire – or wherever you choose – or even spread the run out across the day, using the London Marathon app to track the distance completed and time taken. If you’d like to take part in this unique challenge, while raising much-needed funds for Light Peer Support, please tell us a bit about yourself and why you’d like to run for Light by completing the form here!

We will get back to you by the end of March to confirm whether you have place, so good luck and thank you for your interest in this amazing challenge and in raising much needed funds for Light!
