Virtual London Marathon

Location: Anywhere!
Registration: £25
Minimum sponsorship: £200

50,000 runners will have the chance to be a part of the biggest marathon ever staged anywhere in the world! Could one of those runners be you? Take on the Virtual London Marathon with #TeamWKM – your way!

The Virtual London Marathon will return this year, giving participants the opportunity to take on the world’s greatest marathon on the course of their choice from 00:00:00 to 23:59:59BST, wherever they are on the planet.

The Virtual London Marathon was held for the first time in 2020, when more than 37,000 runners, from all corners of 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’.

The official Virgin London Marathon App will enable you to log your 26.2 miles and earn your coveted medal and New Balance finisher T-shirt. As well as being able to track and log your run, the app will help to bring the virtual experience to life, with an exclusive audio commentary featuring famous voices providing a memorable soundtrack to the day.

We have 5 charity places available so whether you are running solo, or would like to get some friends or colleagues involved, we would love to welcome you to team West Kent Mind!
