Want to take part in the biggest virtual marathon? 

The virtual Virgin Money London Marathon is back for a second year and it's even bigger than before! We'd love you to join our team for highlight event of 2021.

The virtual event was held for the first time in 2020, when more than 37,000 runners, from all over the world, completed the race. The final finishing total of 37,966 means it has been awarded an official Guinness World Records title for the 'Most users to run a remote marathon in 24 hours'

By taking part in the 2021 event, you'll be one of 50,000 to complete the virtual marathon and only one of 10 to do it for our charity and the tinnitus community.
