Virtual London Marathon 2022

Join #TeamSamaritans and 50,000 other runners taking part in the Virtual TCS London Marathon on 2nd October. This is your run and you can take part wherever in the world you are, and in your own way.

  • A certificate to mark your fundraising achievements
  • All runners will receive their running numbers before the event and official finisher medal and T-shirt after the event

We know that life can sometimes be incredibly tough. Thanks to the dedication of more than 20,000 volunteers, Samaritans can be there for anyone, whatever they are going through and whenever they are struggling to cope. We’re also at the heart of local communities, working with schools, workplaces, railways, prisons and hospitals to offer training and support, preventing suicide and helping people turn their lives around.

Our life-saving work wouldn’t be possible without the extraordinary generosity of our event participants.

The virtual TCS London Marathon gives you the freedom to take on 26.2 miles your way, on the route of your choice, at any time from 00:00 to 23:59:59 BST on Sunday 2 October 2022 – the same day as the mass event in London.

I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful and ongoing support from the minute I applied for a place running the London Marathon for the Samaritans, to the end of the day itself. Throughout all of this, your support and encouragement was amazing.
