2022 Virtual TCS London Marathon
The London Marathon needs no introduction. If you are a keen runner, but you’re not sure if you can complete the distance in one go, then the 2022 Virtual TCS London Marathon is not to be missed!
Have you been dreaming of completing the London Marathon? Filled the forms, but didn’t ever get lucky with the ballot? Have you lost confidence over the years in your abilities to run the 26.2 miles all in one go? Have you ever imagined that you might strike it lucky and a doable opportunity might present itself again?
The 2022 Virtual TCS London Marathon is the answer.
Born during lockdown in 2021, the Virtual London Marathon went global with over 24,000 runners from around 100 countries going through the finish line. Only in its second year, more than 40,000 runners worldwide are expected to take part in 2022 alongside the mass London Marathon.
The virtual marathon is all about unity and equality. It’s about offering an opportunity for runners to take part despite their location and abilities. Run locally, walk, stop and rest, complete the challenge, involve your friends, family and colleagues, put the fun back into fundraising. The only rule is…you must be outdoors.
Imagine yourself signing up and fundraising for Hospitality Action?
The Virtual TCS London Marathon will take place on Sunday 2nd of October 2022, the same day as the mass TCS London Marathon. The virtual runners will have 23 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds to complete the 26.2 miles on a course of their choice. An App will monitor the progress of all participants, will also provide encouragement and help everyone feel united, part of the London Marathon event. Some runners will stumble across a BBC crew and will feature in their coverage. The 2nd of October will be all about the London Marathon.
All participants will receive the official London Marathon bib with their unique runners’ number. As you run on route, you will be easy to spot, so that the public can give you a cheer of encouragement. You will be able to spot other participants, give each other an approving wave or even have a rest bite and meet likeminded, local, keen runners. All finishers will receive the coveted official medal and T-shirt.
