This year is “Your Run, Your Way!” Here are a few ideas to personalise your virtual experience:

• Being dropped 26.2 miles from home and running back to a hero’s welcome
• Completing each mile with a different running buddy, sharing the challenge with friends and family
• Getting together with a group of friends to walk the 26.2 miles together
• Creating a unique course that visits the homes of friends and family so they can set up outdoor
drinks stations for a refuel and catch-up over an energy bar.

All virtual runners will receive their running numbers before the event and their coveted official finisher medal and T-shirt after completion. You’ll have a full 24 hours to complete your 26.2 miles using the official London Marathon app.
