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.
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."
