03/10/2021 All Day
The London Marathon organisers recently announced that this year alongside the “live” marathon they are now launching 50,000 places for a virtual event
As a charity, we have been successful in securing places in the Virtual London Marathon this year, taking place on 3rd October 2021
Whilst a virtual run enables you to run the route you choose, we would love to build a team of St Luke’s runners, plan our own marathon route and try to recreate a mini version of the day with supporters on route cheering you on (subject to any government guidelines). We know this kind of support can be a godsend to help your get through a mammoth run like this. This wouldn’t be compulsory but we love the idea and hope you do too. Once we have our team together we can discuss and plan this, a little more (subject to insurers!)
You must run the 26.2 miles within the 24 hour period between 00:00:00 and 23:59 (BST) on Sunday 3 October. You will have access to The Official Virgin Money London Marathon App, which will enable you to log your 26.2 miles. Once you’ve done that you will have earned your coveted medal and New Balance finisher T-shirt! The app will help bring the virtual experience to life, with an exclusive audio commentary featuring famous voices providing a memorable soundtrack to the day.
Registration will be £25.00 (non refundable) and we will ask you to raise a minimum of £250.00 in sponsorship for the Hospice. After you have reached your first £100.00 you will receive your very own “especially designed” technical running vest which you can use for training runs and on the big day itself.
There are limited places left.
On your marks, get set…….GO!
