Do you like running? We have a charity place available for the 2021 virtual Virgin Money London Marathon on Sunday 3 October 2021!

We would love our supporters to take part in this unique challenge, while raising much-needed funds for our charity. It won’t cost you anything – except effort! For this virtual version of the Virgin Money London Marathon you need to:

  • Aim to raise a minimum of £1,000.
  • Design your own route (it’s about 26.2 miles to all Magnificent Seven cemeteries!).
  • Carry a phone capable of using the 2021 Virgin Money London Marathon App to enable GPS to track your 26.2 miles.
  • Be responsible for your own nutrition and hydration during the event.

If needed, we may be able to support you with a water/snack/first aid stop in the Cemetery Park (E3 4PX), and Leytonstone (E11 4LP).

If you would like to take part and raise critical funds for the Friends of Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park, email as soon as possible. You must let us know:

  • How much money you aim to raise
  • How you will raise the money
  • Ideas of how you’ll complete the marathon (e.g. walk, run, wheelchair, run as a whole group – not a relay) and your route.

We aim to let you know as soon as possible.

More information about the event, training and nutrition advice, and ideas and inspiration for creative ways to take part can be found on the London Marathon website.

We look forward to hearing from you!
