Virtual Virgin Money London Marathon - Your Way

Break a Guinness World Record with Farm Africa.

This year the Virgin Money London Marathon on Sunday 3 October is set to be the world’s first 100,000-person marathon, with 50,000 participants in a virtual event around the globe joining 50,000 on the traditional course from Blackheath to The Mall. 

 

Virtual participants have the opportunity to take on the world’s greatest marathon over the course of 24 hours from 00:00:00 to 23:59:59, wherever they like, wherever they are on the planet – and will at the same time be part of an attempt to break a Guinness World Record! With no time pressure and opportunity to run, walk or jog – this charity sporting event is most inclusive and flexible London Marathon ever!

 

There are two ways to get involved...

I can’t believe I actually did it. I’m not the sportiest of people so to run a marathon is remarkable. It wasn’t the fastest of times but I really didn’t mind about the time, I just wanted to finish. I had so much support along the way, which was fantastic!
