When: 3rd October 2021

Where: Wherever you are

The London Marathon is a truly spectacular event and the biggest annual fundraiser in the world, raising more than £1 billion for good causes since it began in 1981. Running a marathon is an incredible challenge, and with 50,000 runners taking part in the virtual event, you could be there with them!

The virtual event is flexible - you can choose your own route and complete your run on the 3rd October between 00:00:00 and 23:59:59BST, wtih as many breaks as you need. You can still celebrate with a personalised t-shirt and medal at the end. Sign up by 22nd September 2021. 

I have my own place


Congratulations! Will you use your place to help us push back against arthritis? You’ll get the same support as our charity place runners, but you won’t need to commit to a sponsorship target.
