London Marathon places 2020

If you’re only ever going to do one marathon, make sure it’s the Virgin Money London Marathon. Due to COVID-19 the 2021 event has now been moved to October.

From the cheering crowds and thrilling atmosphere to the world famous landmarks lining the 26.2-mile route from Greenwich to the Mall, it’s no surprise that this is one of the most famous races in the world. Whats even more exciting is JDRF will be celebrating 100 years of Insulin in 2021, so you can be a part of this historic year.

In 2019, JDRF had over 145 runners pounding the streets of London and this time round, we’re looking to recruit a team of over 200 runners, helping us to raise a combined total of £400,000 to fund type 1 research.

JDRF charity places in the Virgin Money London Marathon 2021 

If you are successful in gaining a place on our team, then there will be a £100 non-refundable registration fee to pay to confirm your place. Please note this is only if you are chosen on to our team. There is also a £2,000 sponsorship target per runner. Places will be chosen in early 2021. 

Unfortunately JDRF has very limited places available and has more applications than places so it makes it very hard for us to be able to choose everyone to join our team. Due to the cancellation of the 2020 event we may not be able to allocate you a place in October 2021 but will consider your application for the April 2022 event. We will of course let you know around January time. 

Virgin Money London Marathon 2021 Ballot

The date for the 2021 ballot application has not been announced. However If you are one of the lucky ones to get a place in the ballot when it is announced or a place with your running club you can still run as part of our team with your own place.

If you do secure an own place through a running club, good for age place or because you had to withdraw from your own place in the 2020 event, please email londonmarathon@jdrf.org.uk and let us know that you have your own place confirmed.
