Pandora Buck, who began running with Great Yarmouth Road Runners Club when she was 50, will take her place in the green area alongside celebrity competitors - though she never anticipated she would be taking on the 26.2 miles again.

Miss Buck, 54, said: “I love running, it has been a really important part of my life, but I threw my shoes in the bin after the last one and said I’m not doing that again. If I get around in under five hours I will be happy.”

Miss Buck has chosen to run in aid of East Coast Hospice.

She said: “I am passionate about local causes and this is something we need in this area. If I can raise £2,000 it could make a big difference.”
