Be part of the biggest marathon ever staged

Join the NCT running team and take part in the iconic Virgin Money London Marathon.

On Sunday 3 October 2021, the virtual Virgin Money London Marathon will return. Not only that, but it’s set to be the biggest ever in the world, with 100,000 runners.

Of these, 50,000 runners will have the chance to complete a route of their choice from 00:00:00 to 23:59:59, wherever they are on the planet.

Runners in the virtual event will join a record 50,000 participants who will run the traditional Virgin Money London Marathon from Blackheath to The Mall.

If you would like to join our NCT running team and earn one of the prestigious London Marathon medals by completing a route of your choice, we would love to hear from you. We have ten places up for grabs and they’re sure to go quickly. Email for more information and let us know you’re interested.

Way back in April 2019, before the world turned upside down, our heroic marathon runners raised thousands for our charity across the country. This has helped us to support thousands of parents during the pandemic, when they needed us more than ever.

The money you raise will help us to continue to provide vital support to parents during the pandemic and beyond. We’ll also link you with our closest NCT volunteer team so that some of the money you raise can directly help parents in your local area.
