Hats off to the long list of celebrities readying themselves to run the epic 26.2 miles of the London marathon. The distance is no walk (or run) in the park, and the stars of this year’s “Face Race” are rather nervous…
Formula 1 racing driver Jenson Button is looking to go sub three hours!
Eggheads quiz star CJ de Mooi won the celebrity race last year – can he pip Jenson to the finish line this time?
Good morning!— CJ de Mooi (@cjdemooi) April 26, 2015
It's the big day and I'm on my way to Blackheath. Despite the pressure, I'll run the whole race with a big smile on my face 😃
Radio 2 Breakfast Show host Chris Evans only revealed he was running this morning!
Meanwhile, over on Radio 1, DJ Greg James is “ready”.

He’ll be lining up with his former MIC co-star Hugo Taylor:
Supermodel Christy Turlington Burns is on a serious pre-race health kick.
