I already have my own place

After a highly successful first year with a Guinness World Records title for the 'most users to run a remote marathon in 24 hours', the Virtual London Marathon returns on Sunday 3 October 2021. You could take part alongside 50,000 other runners from the comfort of your local area.

Your Virtual London Marathon experience

Run, walk, jog or push your way to marathon glory on a route of your choosing. With 23 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds to complete the 26.2 miles, it's your marathon, your way.

And if you don't want to do it all in one go, that's fine. You can break it down into chunks and start/stop whenever necessary.

Please note, treadmills and other stationary running machines cannot be used to take part in the Virtual London Marathon.

Accessibility

Free places for guides or support runners are issued where required. Guides and support runners will also receive a finisher's medal and t-shirt. Please let us know if you require a guide or support runner and we will help arrange this.

Team Scope perks

  • Expert fundraising and training advice from our dedicated events team
  • A free technical Scope running vest (made from recycled plastic bottles) when you reach the £150 fundraising target
  • Team Scope training days and information sessions with our personal trainer (COVID dependant)

The difference you can make

By signing up to the Great North Run with Scope, you'll be raising vital funds to help us end inequality for disabled people.

We know that nearly half of disabled people feel excluded from society. Scope works tirelessly to campaign for change so that disabled people and their families can enjoy equality and fairness in their everyday lives.

£25 could cover the cost of providing advice from a trained professional on our online community.

£75 could go towards our parent support services, giving parents of disabled children practical, tailored advice on a range of topics.

£450 could cover the cost of 50 phone calls to the Scope helpline, providing free, independent and impartial advice and support on issues that matter to disabled people and their families.

I can honestly say that I don’t think I could have coped had it not been for the helpline. They have given me so much time and support through all my difficulties and battles.
