The London Marathon first took place on March 29 1981 and has been held in the spring of every year since.

His times are getting slower.

In response Kate, who was casually dressed in black skinny jeans and a stripy top, said: "We all felt there was very much a campaign to get everyone talking and have these conversations, (so) we've got to do the same, you know, do the same - so he's been brilliant".

Several sub-three-hour runners will be amongst them, including Will Law (personal best of 2:36.58), Danny Rock (2:44.38), Ryan Ostler (2:46.50), Craig Fiddaman (2:47.07), Scott MacSephney (2:55.03) and Alistair Dick (2:58.48, over-50 vet).
