General entry into the virtual 2021 Virgin Money London Marathon on Sunday 3 October is now sold out. The only way to be a part of the world's biggest-ever marathon, wherever you are on the planet, is to secure a charity place and we have 5 places remaining for this
On the 3rd of October #teamSiMBA will have a team of 11 taking part in the Virgin London Marathon. Alistair Douglas (pictured below) will be running the traditional Virgin Money London Marathon from Blackheath to The Mall in memory of his son Hope but we will also have 10 teammates running virtually together with him across the country in the Virtual Virgin London Marathon. The beauty of the Virtual London Marathon is that you can take part wherever you are in the whole wide world and as long as you start and finish between 00:00:00 and 23:59 (BST) on Sunday 3 October, you can break your virtual marathon down into as many sessions as you like by using the pause functionality on your device. Your official result will be based on your total elapsed time.
Did you know - The virtual Virgin Money London Marathon was held for the first time in 2020, when more than 37,000 runners, from all corners of the world, completed the race. The final finishing total of 37,966 means it has been awarded an official Guinness World Records title for the 'Most users to run a remote marathon in 24 hours'.
