Calling all runners… lace up your trainers and run for Rainbows at this year’s Virtual London Marathon.

What is the 2022 Virtual Virgin Money London marathon?

On 2 October 2022, 90,000 people will be taking part in the biggest marathon ever staged in the world. 50,000 will be running the streets of the capital in the physical, in-person marathon, and 40,000 will be running from wherever they are, joining virtually!

How does the virtual marathon work?

When you sign up to do the virtual marathon you’ll have a full 24 hours to complete your 26.2 miles on Sunday 2 October, choosing your very own location and route. You can take breaks in this time, and complete it in as many runs as you like. You can use the official TCS London Marathon App to log and track your run.

How do I secure a place in the 2022 virtual marathon?

You can get your Rainbows Hospice charity place for just £20 when you pledge to fundraise at least £100 for Rainbows.

How do I use the TCS London Marathon app?
