Determined runners gear up for the Virgin London Marathon

Runners from across Windsor are limbering up for the Virgin London Marathon on Sunday. They will join a field of thousands on the 26.2 mile route around the capital.


 

Mark and Yvonne Olney

Yvonne Olney will be running the London Marathon to raise money for the homeless charity Shelter.

The 55-year-old works as an accountant for BMSI in Windsor which has adopted the charity for this year.

The mother-of-two is married to former Royal Borough councillor and deputy headteacher at Eton Porny School Mark Olney and hopes to raise £1,800.

Yvonne, who has lived at Victoria Road, Eton Wick for 20 years, completed a 20 mile run in three hours 20 minutes two weeks ago and said: "It was cold but it is colder for those living on the streets."
