Virtual London Marathon

Whether you’re a beginner walker, or a professional runner this is the virtual marathon for everyone!

You have 24 hours to complete your 26.2 miles, meaning you have plenty of time to walk, jog or sprint the distance – whichever suits you best! Every step you take, no matter how quickly or in what way you complete your marathon, will help to grant Wishes for children with life-threatening illnesses across the UK, bringing magic and laughter into some of their most difficult moments.

  • Each participant will take on their own chosen marathon route locally
  • You will also have access to the official Virgin Money London Marathon App, which allows you to track and log your run, and bring the virtual experience to life, with exclusive audio commentary featuring famous voices providing a memorable and motivating soundtrack to the day!
  • Each participant will also get a finishers t-shirt and medal after the event. We will also send you your own Wish technical running vest.
  • Places cost a £20 deposit, and a commitment of a minimum £150 fundraising.
