October 4 2020: London Marathon 2020

This year is your chance to be part of the 40th London Marathon race!

For the first time ever, the London Marathon will be run virtually, with up to 45,000 runners up and down the UK – and across the world – running the 40th race their own way.

The virtual 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon will take place on Sunday 4 October and participants will have 23 hours 59 minutes and 59 seconds (from 00:00 to 23:59:59 BST) to complete the 26.2 miles, which they can choose to run, walk or jog – making the event the most inclusive London Marathon ever.

Registration is open now. The entry fee is £20 for a UK participant, or £20 plus £5 overseas postage and packaging charge for international runners.

All participants who complete the marathon will receive the 40th race medal and t-shirt and results will be published online.

Full details and registration can be found here.

Thanks to Covid 19 it’s likely to be the only virtual London Marathon – don’t miss this chance to be part of a truly historic event!
