Virgin Money London Marathon

Sunday 4th October 2020 – Virtual London Marathon – The 40th Race – Thank you

A massive THANK YOU and CONGRATULATIONS to all our virtual London Marathon runners. Our big-hearted runners from all over England and as far away as Indonesia and the Netherlands have helped boost the funds of our charity so we can continue to grant poorly children aged four to 17 their dearest wish.

Thank you so much for all your support!

What are your deferral options?

London Marathon have advised us that our charity places will be redistributed over the next three years (3rd October 2021, 24th April 2022 and 23rd April 2023). In mid-September/ early October, the event organisers will inform us how they are allocating our charity spaces over the next three years. We ask for your patience and support and will keep you updated when we have further information.  

If you hold a Ballot place for the 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon, the event organisers will email you on the 1st September to outline your options.
