Two Framlingham Flyers are running the London Marathon for charity.
Kim Frost and Lynn Whittingstall, both from the town, are running the 26.2mile distance for Cancer Research UK and the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
Miss Frost is running in memory of her father who passed away in 2008 after suffering with oesophagus cancer.
She is also running in memory of her mother, who died in a car accident in June 2007.
Miss Frost was in that same collision and broke both of her legs.
She said: “18 miles is the furthest I’ve gone. My only target is to finish, as long as I do that I’ll be happy.”

A Felixstowe teacher is also running the marathon on Sunday.
Sarah White, a Year 1 teacher at Kingsfleet Primary School, is running for Breast Cancer Campaign.
Mrs White, 38, lost her mum to breast cancer when she was 13.
She said: “I’m excited and nervous.
“I have done several 20 mile runs and now it’s just eating a lot of carbs which is the best bit.
“I would love to do it in less than four and a half hours.”
Mrs White also said that she had received tips from her pupils, including being told to run as fast as she can and win the race.
