  • 26.2 miles road running


Your dream of running the world's biggest ever marathon can come true!

Sign up for the Virtual TCS London Marathon, running 26.2 miles on your local roads and trails while earning the same medal that runners get in the capital! What's more, you don't even need to run it all in one go, so long as you log the full distance in 24 hours on the official app.

Ideas and inspiration


  • Exclusive app and audio

    Gain access to live commentary from the race on the official app, with messages of support from famous faces spurring you on as you go!

  • 24 hours to run

    Break it down into stages and enjoy regular comfort breaks, snacks and encouragement. 

  • Pick your route

    Choose to run a familiar loop on local roads or venture into the great outdoors for a trail marathon - the choice is yours.

  • Join the occasion

    You may be running on your own or with a few friends, but through the unique connection to tens of thousands of other people, every step you take has much greater significance.

  • Receive the medal

    Finishers will receive the official TCS London Marathon medal, which is exactly the same as the one awarded to runners in the capital!


The Virtual TCS 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'.
