London Marathon
Sunday 3 October 2021

The Virgin Money London Marathon is one of the UK’s most iconic and prestigious sporting events, combining elite athletics, mass participation and record-breaking fundraising all in one race! Starting in Greenwich, the 26.2 mile-long course runs through the streets of London, over Tower Bridge, and carries victorious athletes across the famous finish line on The Mall. The 2021 race returns to the London course after all the disruption the previous year due to Coronavirus. Runners also have the opportunity of taking part in the Virtual London Marathon this year.

National Eczema Society has now filled its Gold Bond places in the 2021 London Marathon and we are not accepting any more applications. Do email us at if you’d like to be considered for a National Eczema Society place in the 2022 London Marathon. We welcome enquiries from runners who understand just how tough it can be living with eczema and are passionate about raising awareness and funds for our charity! The Marathon is an important source of funding that enables us to support the many people living with eczema who need our help.
