London Marathon

an epilepsy action runner enjoying the glory of the london marathon

Sunday 3 October 2021

The Virgin Money London Marathon is one of the World Marathon Majors. The course starts in the beautiful Greenwich Park and takes you past London’s famous sights including the Cutty Sark, Tower of London and Nelson’s Column. The final mile will take you past Buckingham Palace and onto The Mall where the finish line awaits.

Choosing to run for Epilepsy Action could make a huge difference to the 87 people who receive an epilepsy diagnosis every day. It’s thanks to incredible runners like you that nobody will have to face living with epilepsy alone.

Information on the 2021 virtual London Marathon can be found here.
