Take on the London Marathon in your local area!

If you have always wanted to complete the London Marathon, but never thought you’d be able to, this is the race for you.

You have 24 hours to complete 26.2 miles and can walk, wheel or run. You can also take as many rest stops as you need making this the most accessible London Marathon ever. 

On the day, you’ll have exclusive access to the official London Marathon App which will enable you to track your distance. The app will also help bring the virtual experience to life, with an exclusive audio commentary featuring famous voices providing a memorable soundtrack to the day. 

After the race, you’ll receive the coveted London Marathon medal and T-shirt through the post.
