Virgin Money London Marathon 2021

October 3, 2021


The London Marathon is back on! It’s taking place Sunday 3rd October 2021. The marathon is a great opportunity to have fun whilst raising awareness and funds for Able Child Africa. The deadline to join the 2021 in person marathon has now ended. However, there are still spaces left for the 2022 marathon. 

If you have always wanted to run in the London Marathon but have not been able to make it, you can run virtually on the same day as the London Marathon runners. Running virtually means you’ll have up to 24 hours to get to the finish line.  The deadline to join the virtual marathon ends on 24th September 2021. 

Get involved in the London Marathon 2021 celebrations. 

London Marathon Fundraising Pledge: £1,500 

Virtual Fundraising Pledge: £500

If you would like to participate either in person or virtually please contact: mawuena@ablechildafrica.org.uk  

Why Run For Able Child Africa?

The virtual London Marathon is a great way for you to still participate. After the success of the first 2020 virtual London Marathon with more than 37,000 runners taking part from around the world. We know that the 2021 virtual London Marathon will prove to be even more successful 

The London Marathon is a great opportunity to fundraise for Able Child Africa.
