The Virtual Virgin Money London Marathon returns on 3 October 2021. You’ll have 24 hours to complete 26.2 miles on the course of your choice, wherever you are around the globe. It’s the same incredible achievement, with the same iconic medal at the end – but you can run at a place and pace that suits you best.

 It’s an opportunity to participate in a London Marathon where you can run with your friends and the crowds are only cheering for YOU!

 Public places have sold out, so our charity places are the only way to get involved in this amazing event. For just £15 you can join the best team going, and pledge to raise £260 in support of people with asthma.

Sign up for a charity place 


Already purchased your own Virtual London Marathon place directly with the organisers? No problem, you can still be a part of Team Asthma UK – and we’d love to have you!

You just need to sign up with your own place. There is no registration fee or minimum fundraising target – we just ask that you raise as much as you can in support of people with asthma. And in return you will still receive all the benefits of being on Team Asthma UK!

Join with your own place 



 We will be there every step of the way to support and encourage you all the way to the virtual finish line with our dedicated support package:

  •  Everything you need to get race-ready - from your personalised running vest and expert training plans, to your online community with your 250+ teammates
  • Expert asthma advice - You'll receive tailored training advice for people with asthma as well as access to our specialised asthma nurses
  • Fundraising tips and materials - You'll receive ongoing support, tips and materials to help you go above and beyond your target 
  • Ongoing dedicated support from our Asthma UK Events Team


 Every ten seconds someone in the UK has a potentially life-threatening asthma attack and three people die every day. Tragically two-thirds of these deaths could be prevented, whilst others still suffer with asthma so severe current treatments don't work.

 This has to change. That's why Asthma UK exists. We work to stop asthma attacks and, ultimately, cure asthma by funding world leading research and scientists, campaigning for change and supporting people with asthma to reduce their risk of a potentially life threatening asthma attack.

 The sponsorship you raise will help fund world-class asthma research that’s bringing us closer to a cure, supporting hundreds of thousands of people with expert advice and support, and campaigning to improve the quality of care received by people with asthma.
