Runners are now in the final stages of their strict training regimes, with the hard practice runs behind them they are now focusing their minds on race day.

Some are running for charity, others as a personal challenge and some experienced runners are hoping to beat their personal best.

Friends and relatives of those taking part in the annual sporting spectacular have been showing their support by leaving messages of support on our website.

Another message submitted by a proud mum reads: “Good luck to David Gregory, I know you can do it.”

And Lauren and Nessy said: “You’ve already made us so proud Bobby-Boy!”
