Get creative!
Taking part in the Virgin Money London Marathon, your way, also means you can be creative with the challenge that lies ahead!

You could get dropped 26.2 miles from your home and run back, where a hero’s welcome is sure to await you. Or why not complete each mile with a different running buddy, sharing the challenge with the friends and family who have supported you through your training so far?

You could get together with a group of friends to walk the 26.2 miles together, or have fun creating a unique course that visits the homes of friends and family and ask them to set up drinks stations for you outside their houses so you can refuel and catch up over an energy bar.

Get your hands of those fantastic finisher goodies and be a part of The 40th Race.

What support will I receive?
Here at Bliss, we will support from the moment you sign up, all the way through to race day and your well deserved thank you for taking part .

A huge range of support materials and training guidance from Virgin Money London Marathon experts will also be available on their website, via newsletters and on social media – including Facebook Live Q&A sessions.
