IT'S nearly time...

You've put the hours in, selected your running gear and now all you can think about is pulling on your trainers - it must be London Marathon week.

Thousands of runners will be heading to the capital on Sunday for one of the world's most famous races.

But here's some of the runners from our area that we will be keeping our eyes peeled for on TV. 

Good luck everyone!

I am running the London marathon for a good friend of mine who sadly passed away last April from cancer and the Pickering Cancer Drop-in Care Centre. I am 36 and run with the Northwich Running Club and I live in Weaverham. The London marathon will be my second marathon.

Hi, I'm running the London marathon this month. Would be great of you could include me in your article. I'm a 49 year old father of three from Acton Bridge and a member of the Northwich Running Club. This will be my second London marathon having qualified due to a fast time last year. I am raising funds this year for the Alder Hey Children's Charity. Many thanks, Trevor Cording.
