About Virgin Money London Marathon

The Virgin Money London Marathon is a long-distance running event held in London, United Kingdom.

The event was first run on 29 March 1981. Since then, it has been held in the spring of every year since.

The race was founded by the former Olympic champion and journalist Chris Brasher and athlete John Disley.

Set over a largely flat course around the River Thames, the race begins at three separate points around Blackheath and finishes in The Mall alongside St. James's Park.

The event has raised over 450 million pound for charity since 1981, and holds the Guinness world record as the largest annual fund raising event in the world.
