We have just 1 remaining place for this years Virtual London Marathon - sign up today!

The 2021 Virtual London Marathon runs alongside the live event in the capital to form the biggest marathon ever staged anywhere in the world.

You can choose whether to take on the 26.2 miles in one go, or break your marathon down into as many sessions as you like, so long as you start and finish between 00:00 and 23:59 (BST) on 3 October. It’s your marathon – your way.

So grab your trainers and join #TeamBDA’s biggest ever London Marathon team.

Applications for our 2021 London Marathon are now closed.

A huge thank you to everyone who applied to join the team. It has been really inspiring reading about why you want to support the British Dyslexia Association by taking part in this incredible event and hear your fundraising ideas and plans.

We are currently in the process of contact those who applied for this year's team to let them know if they have been successful.

Applications for our 2022 teams will be open later this year. If you're interested in applying for a place please follow the link below to sign up to be notified once applications are open.
