TV presenter Sue Barker is calling on all London Marathon runners to help the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign mark its 50th anniversary.

As Campaign president, she has asked participants to run in the charity colours and donate a small amount to help in the fight against muscle disease.

Runners who have secured their place in the event on Sunday, April 26, can join the MD team and run in the name of the charity.

To join, contact Dave Boorman of the National Events Team on 020 7803 4827 or email
