The Virtual 2022 TCS London Marathon

Important info:

Event date:

Sunday 2 October 2022

Event location:






In 2020, when the Covid-19 pandemic meant the London Marathon was not able to take place in its usual format, the virtual London Marathon was introduced so that people could still run while the world was restricted.

The 2020 virtual event proved so popular that it returned in 2021. The 41st London Marathon in October 2021 was the biggest marathon ever staged anywhere in the world: with 22,342 people from more than 101 countries taking on the 26.2 miles virtually and 35,871 participants back on the traditional central London course. It was a celebration of everything the London Marathon stands for: fun, fundraising, fancy-dress and amazing community spirit, and a triumph of positivity and togetherness.

The virtual event can be completed over a longer time period than the mass event – from 00:00 to 23:59:59 on Marathon Day - perfect for individuals who need a bit longer to complete the distance, are not able or don't want to travel to London or want the flexibility and freedom to run wherever suits them!
