How to Enter

Deferred Entry

The 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon

The organisers of the Virgin Money London Marathon have now confirmed plans for The 40th Race on Sunday 4 October.

All runners who had a place on 4 October, or who had already deferred their entry to 25 April 2021, will be able to defer their place to a future London Marathon (on 3 October 2021, 24 April 2022 or 23 April 2023), without any further payment.

Important: All runners with a confirmed 2020 place were emailed on 1 September with their available options and a form to make their choice by the deadline of Friday 18 September at 17:00 BST.

We have now emailed everyone who requested a place in the 2021 and 2022 events. We plan to inform people who have requested a place in the 2023 event by 31 January 2021.

If you do not wish to defer your place, you will be offered a full refund of the entry fee you paid to London Marathon Events, which would be made by the end of October 2020.

Please read the FAQs for more information on deferred entry and the options available to runners who have a place in the 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon.
