London Marathon runners limber up for Sunday’s race
Stamford Mercury - almost 6 years

Fundraisers from Stamford, Rutland and Bourne have been training hard and collecting sponsorship money for the 26-mile event which takes place on Sunday morning. George Hales, Burley Road, Langham, is one of this year’s youngest participants at 18.
