Virtual London Marathon 2021

Let’s do this for Yorkshire!

In Yorkshire, nearly 600 people receive a cancer diagnosis every week. When you fundraise for Yorkshire Cancer Research, you’re helping to fund pioneering research to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer in our region.

Virtual London Marathon

Limited places available.

The Virtual London Marathon 2021 is set to be the world’s biggest marathon. Runners all over the world will complete the 26.3 miles within a 24hr period on 3 October 2021.

Whether you are a seasoned marathon runner or are looking for a challenge, this is the perfect event to get involved in as you will be part of the record-breaking 100,000 runners taking part.

Yorkshire Cancer Research only has a limited number of places for this event, which will be offered on a first-come first-served basis.

Supporting Yorkshire Cancer Research

“We received brilliant support at St James’s in Leeds. I decided I wanted to give something back for the sake of others facing cancer. Since then, my wife Bev has been gaining strength so we decided to do something together to raise money for Yorkshire Cancer Research.”
