Virgin Sport

Virgin and Sport have always been a great team. From hot air balloon adventures to health clubs and marathon runs, here at Virgin weve always been on our toes.

So it may come as no surprise that Virgin Sport was dreamt up on the go. Sir Richard and Co-Founder Freddie Andrewes were cycling through South Africa, when the epiphany struck to build a movement that combines the sweat of sport with the swagger of Virgin. And share a whole lot of fun along the way.

Run your way through vibrant East London on flat and fast city streets. The cheering crowds will carry you past highlights like the Hackney Downs and the Hackney Empire, plus there will be live bands and DJs at every mile to keep you going. Cross over the finish line into a full festival of fitness on the Hackney Marshes. Just like the borough, this route brings the spirit.
