Take on the world’s greatest marathon on a course of your choice from 00:00:00 to 23:59:59, wherever you are on the planet. You can walk, jog or run the route in whichever way you like, take your time and even take breaks. You will receive an official London Marathon coveted medal and finisher t-shirt!

We only have 2 places available in the virtual run so don’t miss out! You will also receive all the support and advice you could need.

Do you have your own place for virtual or traditional London Marathon?
If you have secured your own place in the event through the official London Marathon ballot, then we would love to have you as part of the team. There is no minimum fundraising target, however anything you raise will go a long way in helping us to support the Anne Frank Trust.

Help us get a step closer to a world free from prejudice, and become a marathon finisher in 2021.
