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 event offering.

This means charities like us will be able to raise even more vital funds for our cause.

We would love you to run in support of Coram Beanstalk, joining up to 50,000 runners up and down the UK – and across the planet. The 2021 Virtual Virgin Money London Marathon will take place on Sunday 3 October and you will have 23 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds (from 00:00 to 23:59:59 BST) to complete the 26.2 miles, which you can choose to run, walk or jog – making the event the most inclusive London Marathon ever.

A special tracking app for your smart phone will be provided to log your 26.2 miles, provide you with exclusive audio commentary and ultimately earn the coveted Virgin Money London Marathon finisher medal and New Balance finisher T-shirt.
