Have you always dreamed of being part of the London Marathon but never made it to the capital? Or unsure you'll be able to run the 26.2 miles in one go? We have the perfect solution for you! Join #TeamNWCR and run for research with the Virtual TCS London Marathon.


Your marathon, your way!

It's your opportunity to be part of the world's biggest marathon on your own terms! You'll have from 00:00 to 23:59:59 on Marathon Day to complete your 26.2 miles however and wherever you like. Whether you do it in stages, alongside your friends, from home or pick a scenic route, the possibilities are endless and you'll be supporting life-saving research right here in our region. 


Virtual Marathon finishers receive the same medal and t-shirt as finishers in the mass race, so you won't miss out on reaping the rewards! You'll benefit from the same support too, with a running number, full package of pre-event information from both North West Cancer Research and Marathon organisers, and fundraising support throughout. 


Why choose #TeamNWCR?

By taking on the Virtual TCS London Marathon for #TeamNWCR you'll be supporting life-saving research for years to come and helping our researchers to tackle the cause, improve the care and find the cure for cancer.

As part of our team, you’ll receive fantastic support from the moment you sign up all the way until you cross that finish line (wherever it may be). We'll provide you with a fundraising pack and unlimited support in the run-up to and during the event and reward you with a bespoke North West Cancer Research medal to commemorate your achievement! (In addition to your official London Marathon medal!) 

Let us know you would like to run for us and we’ll send your sponsorship forms and more great tips and tricks to give your fundraising an extra boost! Fill out the form below or email [email protected]
