Virgin Money London Marathon - Your Way

For the first time ever, Farm Africa supporters can run the London Marathon their way, joining up to 45,000 runners up and down the UK – and across the world.

The London Marathon is the world’s greatest marathon, and this year, from wherever you are – it’s your chance to do The 40th Race your 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. With no time pressure and opportunity to run, walk or jog – this charity sporting event is most inclusive and flexible London Marathon ever!
