London Marathon 2023

Virtual London Marathon

If you’re only ever going to do one marathon, make sure it’s the London Marathon. Take on this prestigious challenge virtually wherever you are or, if you were successful in the public ballot, we want you to join Team SANE!

The virtual marathon gives participants of all abilities the opportunity to complete their 26.2 miles over 23 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds. This makes it an inclusive option for those who might not have considered taking on a marathon before.

From the cheering crowds and thrilling atmosphere to the world famous landmarks lining the 26.2-mile route from Greenwich to the Mall, it’s no surprise that this is one of the most famous races in the world. If you have a ballot place then join Team SANE and make a difference in the lives of people affected by mental illness.
