A King's Lynn man will be pounding the pavements across the capital in his bid to fight prostate cancer.
Steve Eke, 52, will be running the London Marathon on Sunday, April 22, for Prostate Cancer UK.
After losing his father to the disease, Mr Eke said he wanted to go the extra mile for a charity which has helped him and his family.
He added: 'I decided to run for Prostate Cancer UK because it's a charity very close to my heart.
'For fifteen years my father battled with prostate cancer and it eventually led to his death.'
