Virgin Money London Marathon

We are delighted that despite the Covid-19 crisis, the London Marathon will still be going ahead on a new date; Sunday 4 October 2020.

The London Marathon is one of the best races in the world for both the experienced runner and the beginner! This iconic race sees the capital city come together and create an unbeatable atmosphere, supporting thousands of runners as they push themselves to their limits raising money for charity. With a route that runs past royal parks, Parliament and finishes in-front of Buckingham Palace, it's never less than breath-taking.
