About 37,000 runners will set off from Greenwich Park and Blackheath next Sunday morning at the start of the 2014 Virgin London Marathon.

One of the UK’s biggest annual sporting events will once again feature runners from South Holland and the Deepings, aiming to register personal best times and raise thousands of pounds for charity.

Elite athletes such as double Olympic and World champion Mo Farah, Olympic and World rowing gold medallists Katherine Grainger and Anna Watkins, former England footballer Michael Owen and Masterchef: The Professionals host Michel Roux Jr. will be joined by a trio of athletes from our area.
