Virgin Money London Marathon

3rd October 2021

Be part of the Virgin Money London Marathon. Whether you run, walk or cheer from the sidelines, this is a London sporting institution. Every year, approximately 30,000 people run the 26.2-mile (42.2km) marathon through the streets of London. Some run for personal achievement, some to raise money for their favourite charity; and many run in outrageous fancy-dress. Previous years' costumes have included a giant penguin, a London bus, Superman, and a slow-moving snail. The Virgin Money London Marathon is open to all abilities, from beginners who walk the course to professional athletes. The route runs along the south of the Thames and then the north side after crossing the river on Tower Bridge. From Greenwich and Blackheath to Buckingham Palace, runners pass some of the capital's famous landmarks, including the London Eye and the Tower of London.
