London plans world's first 100,000-person marathon


The 2021 Virgin Money London Marathon is set to be the biggest marathon ever staged anywhere in the world, with an incredible 100,000 runners scheduled to take part on Sunday 3 October.

Organisers London Marathon Events today confirmed the virtual Virgin Money London Marathon will return this year, with 50,000 places available for runners to take on the world's greatest marathon on the course of their choice from 00:00:00 to 23:59:59 BST on 3 October, wherever they are on the planet.

On the same day, a record 50,000 participants will run from Blackheath to The Mall in the traditional mass-participation Virgin Money London Marathon on the streets of the capital, an increase of more than 7,000 on the previous finisher record.

We have 2 actual places available and 5 virtual places available, so if you are interested in running and raising funds for The Childrens Centre, please email us at fundraising@thechildrenscentre.org.im to register your interest.
