Day three of the Virgin Money London Marathon Running Show has drawn to a close and today we were visited by some incredible, inspirational guests – including the wonderful Colin Burgin-Plews in his big dress.

Here are a few highlights from the day.

We were joined at the main stage by the reigning champion Vivian Cheruyiot and fellow elite Mary Keitany who talked us through their pre-race training (running an average of 110 miles per week!) and their post-race treats (sleeping and eating as much as they like!)

We know that the great and the good turn out to wish Virgin Money London Marathon runners the best of luck – but even we were surprised to see the Queen in the queue for a medal photo today!

Another well known face taking on this epic challenge for charity of the year Dementia Revolution is winner of the Great British Bake Off, Candice Brown. Candice is running in memory of her grandfather Fred, who had Alzheimer’s.

And last but by absolutely no means least, we were visited by Colin Burgin-Plews who is running the marathon again this year in yet another gigantic creation – this time representing Virgin Money Giving and, as always, fundraising for Breast Cancer Now. Colin delighted the crowds by taking picture after picture and then took to the stage for a brilliant interview with Geoff Wightman.

And of course what makes every day at the Running Show special is people like YOU! We are all here to celebrate you and say #ThanksaBillion and we can't wait to see more of you tomorrow.
