By taking part, children will be part of the world’s greatest marathon, joining 50,000 runners completing 26.2 miles on the streets of London in the mass Virgin Money London Marathon, and a further 50,000 people running a virtual event of the same distance across the world.
Last year more than 100,000 children took part in the Virgin Money Giving Mini London Marathon in schools. This year, we are aiming to inspire 500,000 children to finish the event between Monday 27 September and Friday 22 October.
Every child who takes part – up to 500,000 – will receive a free commemorative Virgin Money Giving Mini London Marathon in schools pin badge. There will be lots of other resources available, including downloadable running numbers, posters, certificates, and videos, to help get the London Marathon buzz going at your school.
