Run the 2023 TCS London Marathon your way. Run the route of your choice at your own pace, on the same day as the mass event in London.

You can complete this iconic virtual challenge with friends and family or on your own, from home or away, in stages or all at once – it’s up to you. We’ll support you all the way to the finish line with training plans, advice from our marathon coach, fundraising tips, and the chance to win exclusive kit and prizes along the way.

Feel the thrill of knowing that you are joining a community of runners making an impact in helping Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) give children with cancer the extraordinary care, expertise and facilities they need.

Together we can run it, walk it, jog it. Together we can help beat childhood cancer.

What is the Virtual TCS London Marathon?

When you run the Virtual TCS London Marathon, you can complete the iconic 26.2- mile distance however and wherever you like, at the same time as the event in London on 23 April.

You can run it along country lanes near your home, or even on a beach while you are on holiday.

It’s a flexible option that allows you to complete the marathon your way. It could be a fantastic option for you if need more flexibility for religious reasons, or because you have a health condition.

How does the Virtual London Marathon work?

Entries are open now for the Virtual TCS London Marathon. To run with us, the registration fee is £10.

Once you’re signed up, you can start training and fundraising. We’ll support you all the way to the finish line with training plans, advice from our marathon coach, fundraising tips, and the chance to win exclusive kit and prizes along the way.

On Marathon Day, complete the distance however you like – on your own or with friends, in stages or all at once, and record your results on the Official TCS London Marathon App.

Why run the Virtual London Marathon for GOSH?
