The October Virtual Marathon

A guaranteed opportunity for an Autumn Marathon medal 

We are excited to launch our NEW October Virtual Marathon and give runners who have started their marathon training or are looking for their next challenge, an opportunity to grab an Autumn marathon medal!

In October, we’re offering marathon entrants a 10 day window to run the 26.2 miles on your own or within socially distanced small groups and log the result on an activity tracking device. Times will be compiled into a race leaderboard, with prizes awarded to winners and leading age categories.

Race dates: 2nd - 12th October 2020.

The race is a UK Athletics licenced event and once signed up, we will send you a step by step guide on how to take part, it couldn’t be easier!  

Whilst we can’t promise the crowds to spur you on and the excitement of race day competition, we can however recreate the sense of running community and challenge in our unique results platform and selfie gallery. We are able to replicate a real race environment (as close as we can!). The virtual event features:
- Live leaderboard of results
- Race trophies for leading runners and age group winners
- Unique selfie gallery where you can high five your fellow runners and see who you are up against at a safe social distance!
- Plus spot prizes for creativity and best selfies
- Exclusive bespoke finishers medal
- It’s a UK Athletics registered event
Whilst the future of live mass participation events is uncertain, you can still be part of a virtual running community and set yourself a goal to work towards over the coming months.
Sign up, lace up and get started! (within the recommended safety guidelines of course).
Don’t forget to check out our August Bank Holiday Virtual Running Festival on 29th – 31st August.

This event will have a race for everyone! With a range of distances for you to take part in, providing you with some key milestone challenges to incorporate into your marathon training programme. This includes a 20 mile and half marathon distance – we have your training covered and will support you every step of the way!
