Best of luck to all London Marathon runners

Today I am wishing everyone running for Charities in the London Marathon all the very best... especially over 650 people running for The Children's Trust.

The Children's Trust is the official charity for the Flora London Marathon 2009.

If you are watching on TV at home, look out for the 'yellow submarine' runners, who were interviewed on the BBC during the Saturday Breakfast sports reports. The Children's Trust runners can’t be missed... their running vests are bright green and have the Children's Trust butterfly logo on them.

There will be a BBC interview with one of the children, Alby, and his family, between 8.30am and 12pm. You will be able to text the BBC with messages of support which will be 'displayed' during the live coverage.

Many celebrities are running for The Children's Trust and helped recruit over 650 runners – the Trust's biggest team ever!

Everyone taking part in the marathon for The Children’s Trust are also helping to celebrate the Trust's 25th anniversary.

To find out more please ring The Children’s Trust’s marathon team on 01737 365018 or check out the The Children's Trust London Marathon 2009 website.

Good luck to everyone running – The Children's Trust are very proud to have over 650 people running for them – and look forward to seeing all runners at the post Marathon party!
