The VIRTUAL Virgin Money London Marathon returns this October 2021, giving you the chance to take part in this year’s Guinness World Record-breaking attempt!
General entry is now sold out. The only way to be a part of the world’s biggest-ever marathon is to secure a charity place, and Breathing Matters is lucky to have a few coveted places.
Whilst 50,000 runners are running the traditional London Marathon from Blackheath to The Mall, a further 50,000 runners in the virtual event will be running the same distance, just in a place of their choosing! Last year’s Virtual Virgin Money London Marathon, which was held for the first time in 2020, was awarded an official Guinness World Records title for the ‘Most users to run a remote marathon in 24 hours’ at 37,966 runners. The organisers want to smash this record in the 2021 race – and if they do, every runner will have the opportunity to claim their official world record certificate.
