2021 Virgin Money London Marathon International Ballot

Thank you for your interest in the 2021 Virgin Money London Marathon on Sunday 3 October. The international public ballot is now closed. The ballot opened on Sunday 4 October and closed at 17:00 on Friday 9 October 2020.

If you’ve entered the international ballot, you will receive your ballot result via email during the week commencing Monday 8 February. We wish you the very best of luck! 

If you are successful in the international ballot, the entry fee for the 2021 Virgin Money London Marathon is £125. Please note: £26 of your entry fee will be invested in verified tree-planting projects to balance CO2 emissions from international travel.

Across all our events and operations, we are taking action to reduce and eliminate greenhouse gas-emitting activities while paying close attention to monitoring our carbon footprint. We want to inspire you and others to do the same.

International participant travel accounts for more than 85 per cent of our carbon footprint and while we want to encourage the global community of marathon runners, we also want to protect our natural environment.
