Run the virtual London Marathon for The Children's Bookshow!

The 2021 London Marathon will be taking place on Sunday 3rd October, with a record 50,000 participants running 26 miles on the streets of the capital, from Blackheath to Buckingham Palace. On the same day, an additional 50,000 people will have the chance to take on the world's greatest marathon on the course of their choice from 00:00:00 to 23:59:59 BST, wherever they are on the planet - building on the success of the first-ever virtual London Marathon last year.

Together, these participants will make history by creating the world's first 100,000-person marathon - could you be one of those runners?

We have 3 charity places available in the virtual 2021 London Marathon and we're looking for the 3 extraordinary people who could take up this unique challenge and run on behalf of The Children's Bookshow. Do you like a challenge? Could it be you? Please get in touch with us today!
