To express your interest in running the Virtual London Marathon for Oakleaf and support better mental health in Surrey, please email: jenclay@oakleaf-enterprise.org

 

The event will take place on Sunday 3 October and is set to be the world’s first 100,000-person marathon with 50,000 participants in a virtual event around the globe joining 50,000 on the traditional course in London. The Virtual Virgin Money London Marathon was held for the first time in October 2020, when more than 37,000 runners from all corners of the world completed the event remotely due to Covid-19, making it an official Guinness World Record for the ‘Most users to run a remote marathon in 24 hours’.

 

This year, participants will have between 00:00:00 to 23:59:59 on Sunday 3rd October to complete the marathon (26.2 miles) on the course of their choice. All finishers will receive the coveted official Virgin Money London Marathon medal and T-shirt. Once again, the Virgin Money London Marathon App will enable runners to track and record their runs.

    • A finishers medal and T-shirt after you finish the event, sent by race organisers

The funds you raise will go towards supporting hundreds of individuals struggling with mental ill-health in the form of trainings, activities, workshops, counselling and emotional support both virtually and in-person.

In the words of event director, Hugh Brasher: “The London Marathon is a wonderful example of sport as a force for good while raising millions for charity. It’s all about communities and people coming together and one of our founding pillars is to have fun and provide some happiness and a sense of achievement in a troubled world.

 

“People can run wherever they are in the world, they can run for charity, they can run for their mental or physical health, or run for the sheer enjoyment of it – whatever the reason, they will be part of a unique day in the history of the London Marathon on Sunday 3 October.”

 

We are working to ensure that our hundreds of clients can access the support they need whether it is online, over the phone or in-person. You can find our most recent Covid-19 Update here. To all those who support Oakleaf, we can’t thank you enough.
