Enter the virtual 2022 TCS London Marathon

Be part of the world’s biggest marathon on Sunday 2 October – and earn the coveted finisher’s medal and souvenir New Balance T-shirt – by entering the virtual 2022 TCS London Marathon today!

Entries cost £28 for UK participants and £35 (including £7 postage and packaging) for international participants.

New for 2022

Can’t complete your 26.2 miles on Marathon Day for religious reasons or because you have a disability that means you need more time? No problem – you can still join us!

If you’re unable to take part on Sunday 2 October for religious reasons you just need to go ahead do your 26.2 miles on the next available day. You’ll have to upload your result manually rather than via the TCS London Marathon app, which is only available on Marathon Day. (Instructions for manual upload will be provided in the lead-up to the event.)

If you need more time to complete your 26.2 miles due to a disability, please get in touch with us and we’ll work out a solution to suit you.

Do it your way

The virtual TCS London Marathon gives you the freedom to take on 26.2 miles your way, on the route of your choice, at any time from 00:00 to 23:59:59 BST on Sunday 2 October 2022 – the same day as the mass event in London.

You can do it with friends or on your own, from home or away, in stages or all at once – it’s up to you!

The Official App

The Official TCS London Marathon App is full of fantastic features that help bring the marathon experience to life. Among many other things, virtual participants can use the Official App to log their 26.2 miles and earn their coveted medal and New Balance finisher T-shirt.

We’ll let you know the when the Official App for 2022 becomes available – so stay tuned!

Virtual Event Guide

We created a free Virtual Event Guide for the 2021 event, which contained everything participants needed to know. We'll be producing another guide for participants in the lead-up to the 2022 virtual TCS London Marathon, so please check back for details later.
