Kenyas Mary Keitany eyes marathon world record in London

The Duchess's words of praise came when she invited a group of London Marathon runners, supporting William, Kate and Harry's Heads Together mental health campaign, to the grounds of her Kensington Palace home to wish them luck.

Mr Howse said: "I don't think she knew who he was, but she was very, very excited". I'm a 49 year old father of three from Acton Bridge and a member of the Northwich Running Club.

Although the Jerusalem marathon a year ago was very special, I can't imagine any marathons in the world being quite like London... the course, the support, the fans, just fantastic.

The 56-year-old, of Bretherton, made a decision to raise money for mental health charity Lancashire Mind, after a close family member took their own life in 2015.

On Sunday, finally running free of the succession of back, hip and calf injuries that have dogged the last five years of his career, he hopes to be able go one better by winning the London Marathon and eclipsing Kimetto's world record.

"I can't thank them enough".

Andy Farquhar is running the London Marathon for a bowel cancer charity in memory of his mum Elizabeth and gran Betty, who both died from the illness.

US accuses Iran of "alarming provocations" amid nuke tensions
He says an unchecked Iran could pursue the same path as Pyongyang "and take the world along with it". The administration says it is reviewing these accords and could still pull out of them.

He added: "I've had such incredible support so far, with people joining me on my runs to keep my spirits up and cheering me on".

"The advice I've been given is to take it easy; however, I'm still determined to do the marathon - even if I have to walk the entire 26.2 miles".

He said: "I found out I had a place in October and ever since then it has been hours on the road and training for it".

Spencer, who has recorded a Heads Together video chatting with her best friend about post-natal depression, told Kate: "I feel now everyone will see it as something so normal, even for me it kind of almost went to a really, really dark place, but I managed to scoop myself out".

"So when I discovered the standard of support offered by The Mix to young people, no matter their issues or background, I wanted to support them".

The weather on marathon day hasn't always been so ideal: some extreme weather was experienced in 2004 when it was particularly wet and windy. I also want to inspire people like myself who suffer that anything is possible.

"I'm looking forward to the big day with family waiting for me at the end to see me over that finish line!"
