Plenty of keen runners from Buckingham and the surrounding area took part in one of the hottest London Marathons for many years last weekend.

Most were raising money for charity, some got their target time while others battled to the finish line in spite of the warm weather and injuries picked up on route.

They all deserve our adulation and in the picture gallery above we have rounded up the best pictures and stories from locals that ran London.

If you know of someone from the Buckingham area who participated but isn’t featured here e-mail details and a photo to neil.shefferd@jpress.co.uk and we’ll add them.
