Virtual Virgin Money London Marathon

Date: Sunday 4th October 2020

Where: Anywhere,

Sponsorship target: £500

This year’s London Marathon will take place on Sunday 4th October, but not as we know it. Sadly, due to the current pandemic, it is not possible for the event to take place as we know and love, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t celebrate the spirit of London together virtually.

Instead of filling the streets of London with a sea of multi-coloured charity vests and fancy dress costumes, this year runners will have the opportunity to take on the Virgin Money London Marathon their way. Participants will have 23 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds from midnight to 23.59 on Sunday 4th October to complete their 26.2 miles from home or anywhere in the world on the course of their choice. You can run or walk and take as many breaks as you like, you just have to ensure you log your 26.2 miles on the official app to receive your 2020 finishers T-shirt and all important 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon medal.

Shooting Star Children’s Hospices has 25 places available to be part of the 40th virtual race. These places will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis. All we ask is that you pledge to raise a minimum sponsorship of £500 (not including gift aid).
