On Sunday 3rd October 2021, join the 50,000 people that will make history and be a part of the largest fundraising event on the planet. Take on the virtual Virgin Money London Marathon this year for #TeamStHelena to help local people face incurable illness and bereavement.
By taking part for St Helena Hospice and joining #TeamStHelena your registration fee will be completely free and you will receive the coveted official finisher medal! All we ask is that you raise a minimum of £100 sponsorship.
The best thing is you can do it your way; walk, run, it’s entirely up to you! You will have a whole 24 hours to complete the 26.2 miles, so stop and start as many times as you need to throughout the day or, if you’re up for the challenge, complete it all in one go. This year’s marathon, like the first virtual marathon held last year, is all from home so you can take it on in whichever location you choose.
The first virtual marathon saw 37,966 runners attend where they were awarded an official Guinness World Records title for the ‘Most users to run a remote marathon in 24 hours’. Join for 2021 and you could be a key contributor towards breaking this record and setting a brand new one.
We receive only a third of our funding from the NHS and rely on the generosity of our community for the rest. Over the last year, our income has been severely impacted by national lockdowns, shop closures and cancelled fundraising events. By taking part in the virtual London Marathon, you can help us to continue to be here for patients and families who need our support.

When you make a donation to St Helena Hospice, we are charged transactional fees by other companies, including fees for processing payments made to us, looking up addresses and validating bank account details.
We are very grateful to our donors who offer to offset some of these fees with a minor addition to their total amount. This is however completely optional and we are very grateful for your support whether or not you choose to contribute to processing fees.Close
We are able to claim an extra 25p on every £1 on your donation amount for no extra cost to you, as long as you are a UK tax payer; have paid enough income tax or capital gains tax in that tax year; and are donating your own money. For more information about Gift Aid, please visit www.gov.ukClose
