Make marathon history with MapAction!

The 2021 Virgin Money London Marathon is taking place on Sunday 3 October, with a record 50,000 participants running on the streets of the UK’s capital, from Blackheath to The Mall.

On the same day, an additional 50,000 people will have the chance to take part on the course of their choice from 00:00:00 to 23:59:59 BST, wherever they are on the planet.

This remote event will build on the success of the first-ever virtual London Marathon which took place last year in which four fantastic MapAction runners took part. 

Together, these participants will make history by creating the world’s first 100,000-person marathon. Would you like to be one of them?

We have a limited number of charity places this year; four in the London race and 10 in the virtual race – so if you’d like to take part in this unique challenge, while raising much-needed funds for MapAction, please register your interest as soon as possible

We would love to find enough runners to participate on every continent, so please do share this opportunity with anyone you think might be interested. 

Join us and thousands of other participants on 3 October who’ll be celebrating everything the London Marathon embodies – fun, fundraising, fancy-dress and amazing community spirit – in aid of MapAction!
