Virgin Money London Marathon 2021

Join #TeamFarmAfrica at one of the world's largest marathons!

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.
