This Sunday is the day they have all been waiting for - after months of training the 2014 London Marathon is nearly upon us.

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.

The team at Archant sent health reporter Lauren Everitt a message and said: “Good luck to Lauren running for St Elizabeth Hospice.”
