Virtual London Marathon places available!

Here's a fantastic chance to be part of the iconic London Marathon like no other in 2021! We've got 25 places available for the Virtual London Marathon, scheduled to take place on 3 October, the same day as the actual event.

The London Marathon is one of the top six international marathons and one of the highlights of our events calendar. This year there will be over 100,000 runners out on the roads – 50,000 at the physical event in London and 50,000 on the virtual event – making it the biggest and best London Marathon yet.

If you'd like to apply to be one of the 25 runners in the virtual event, contact events@specialeffect.org.uk. You'll have 24 hours to complete the marathon distance, and you'll receive an official medal, finisher t-shirt and race number. You can decide your own route or even run it on a treadmill! It's a unique opportunity to be part of worldwide history, and a big thank you to the companies who've already signed up independently to take part for us, including Aardvark Swift, MiniClip and Sumo Digital.

Thanks so much to everyone taking part, and we wish you very best for your training!
