Virtual Virgin Money London Marathon 2021

October 3, 2021

Sign up today for a complimentary entry and join an incredible trans-Atlantic team of runners raising funds for Parkinson’s disease research!

The Virtual Virgin Money London Marathon is making a return this year, and Van Andel Institute has teamed up with U.K.-based Cure Parkinson’s to give runners the opportunity to take on the world’s greatest marathon from the comfort of their hometown. Simply plan your course, download the official app, start fundraising and get running!

Join the waitlist

To take part and to receive your unique finisher’s medal and t-shirt via mail, you’ll need to complete 26.2 miles in 24 hours, anytime between 7 p.m., Oct. 2, and 7 p.m., Oct. 3.

You will track and log miles using the Official Virgin Money London Marathon app, which also provides access to an exclusive audio commentary about the history and atmosphere of the event while guiding you on your own personal, virtual tour of London!

In exchange for access to this incredible experience, and for your complimentary entry, we ask that you commit to raising $350 to support Parkinson’s research through the International Linked Clinical Trials (iLCT) initiative, a collaborative drug-repurposing effort between Cure Parkinson’s and VAI. Since its establishment in 2012, iLCT has supported 22 clinical trials — seven completed, 15 underway as of March 2021 — of medications designed to treat other diseases that also have promise in Parkinson’s.

When you join our team, you’ll receive:

  • Help and support from our team of friendly fundraisers
  • A free technical running vest
  • A fundraising pack with top-notch tips and tricks
  • Access to fundraising materials to make your fundraising a breeze
  • Regular updates on how your support impacts research at VAI and Cure Parkinson’s

Spots are limited for this exciting opportunity, and the registration deadline is Aug. 19 at 11 a.m.

For more information, please contact Ashley Owen at or 616-234-5390.
