Run the 2021 Virtual London Marathon with RBF

Did you get a place in the 2021 London Marathon? If you missed out this year, why not run the Virtual London Marathon on behalf of RBF? We have three virtual places up for grabs for any keen runners who want to fundraise for us. 

Your run. Your way.

The virtual Virgin Money London Marathon will return this year, on Sunday 3rd October, giving participants the opportunity to take on the world’s greatest marathon on the course of their choice from 00:00:00 to 23:59:59, wherever they are on the planet.

Runners in the virtual event will join a record 50,000 participants who will run the traditional Virgin Money London Marathon from Blackheath to The Mall.

The Official Virgin Money London Marathon App, powered by TCS, will enable you to log your 26.2 miles and earn your medal. As well as allowing you to track and log your run, the app will help bring the virtual experience to life, with an exclusive audio commentary featuring famous voices providing a memorable soundtrack to the day.
