First marathon ready for the off

More than 1,500 people have signed-up for the first Chesterfield and Derbyshire Marathon on Sunday. There is the choice of a full marathon, half marathon, fun run and relay race, and the finale is in Queens Park.

Money will be raised for Kids ‘n’ Cancer UK, which is supporting the family of Ashya King, the five-year-old with brain cancer whose parents were controversially arrested in Spain.
