London Marathon organisers have announced plans to make the 2021 Virgin Money London Marathon the biggest 26.2-miler ever staged. They are planning for a record 50,000 runners to run from Blackheath to The Mall in the traditional mass-participation race on October 3.

How do I get a place in the 2021 London Marathon?

1. Apply for one of our two Charity places…

Both EIA guaranteed places in the London Marathon 2021 have now been allocated to supporters.

2. Get your own place…

We’d love to build an EIA team for the 2021 event. For this we are entirely reliant on our loyal supporters to obtain their own places (in which case there would be no minimum amount to raise for EIA of course, it would be entirely your choice).

So if you are one of the lucky ones to receive a London Marathon place through your running club or through the ballot, we would love to hear from you too!

Swim or trek for us

If running is not your thing, organise your own trek like Nico who took on the Gobi March. Design your own challenge through your own sports club or tour operator… or browse over 40 treks and 30 cycling challenges in the UK or across four continents on the Discover Adventure website.

Corporate teams can support EIA too

Why not organise a team challenge with colleagues? From one day challenges to week long trips, explore the fundraising and team building events Discover Adventure can offer your organisation. Simply select EIA on their website when registering your team.

Once you have registered and chosen your challenge, we’d love to hear about your plans and fundraising target, so please fill out our contact form (selecting ‘events and sponsored challenges’).
