Take on the world’s greatest marathon for seafarers in need


Maritime professionals who are keen runners but missed out on a TCS London Marathon 2023 place can still apply for a guaranteed Virtual London Marathon place with seafarer welfare charity Sailors’ Society.

Virtual London Marathon can be run as a team or individually, from any location, anywhere in the world. Participants just need to cover 26.2 miles over 24 hours on Sunday April 23 – the same day as the marathon in London. With cutting edge technology pointing out landmarks along the way, virtual runners can feel like they are running in the UK’s capital.

Sara Baade, Sailors’ Society CEO, said: “The beauty of taking on Virtual London Marathon is that registrants can take part wherever they are in the world and do it their way. Run or walk it, as a team or on your own, from home or away, in stages or all at once – it’s up to you.

“This is a great opportunity to tick one of the world’s greatest marathons off the bucket list, as well as raising vital funds to support seafarers and their families in need.”

To enter, runners need to pay a registration fee of just £30 and commit to raise at least £200 in sponsorship.

In return, participants will receive expert fundraising and training advice, audio support and route tracking on the official app powered by TCS, an official finisher’s medal, a Sailors’ Society training top and finishing line tape. An added bonus is that registrants will also be shortlisted for a physical place in the live 2024 TCS London Marathon.
