A running club is staging a special 3.7-mile run in honour of a competitior who died in the London Marathon.

Former Masterchef competitior Matt Campbell from Manchester collapsed just under 4 miles from the finishing line during last Sunday's event.

Thousands of runners have signed up across the country to run the distance he had left to complete the race, to raise money for children's charity the Brathay Trust.

Wayland Hares will be meeting at Watton Clock Tower at 6.15pm on Sunday.

All welcome, the group is suggesting a £5 donation to Mr Campbell's justgiving page, which has raised around £200,000.
