Pudsey Pacers run their own virtual London Marathon around town

Pudsey Pacers Running Club have run the Virtual London Marathon by completing several laps around their home town.

This year’s London Marathon was cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions, leaving runners with little option but to keep things local.

Pudsey Pacers members and supporters made a great effort to re-create the sites and landmarks of London competitors would typically run past. They ran four six-mile circuits around Pudsey.

Photographer Cathy Martin captured the runners in action around Pudsey:
