Virgin Money London Marathon 2021


Sunday October 3rd 2021

Be part of team LfL and take part in one of the most famous and coveted marathons in the world. This year the London Marathon is set to be the biggest marathon ever staged anywhere in the world, with an incredible 100,000 runners scheduled to take part on Sunday 3 October.

Organisers London Marathon Events today confirmed the virtual Virgin Money London Marathon will return this year, with 50,000 places available for runners to take on the world’s greatest marathon on the course of their choice from 00:00:00 to 23:59:59 BST on 3 October, wherever they are on the planet. On the same day, a record 50,000 participants will run from Blackheath to The Mall in the traditional mass-participation Virgin Money London Marathon on the streets of the capital, an increase of more than 7,000 on the previous finisher record.
