LEEK business owner Richard Stubbs will be in good company when he runs in this year's Virgin London Marathon – double Olympic champion Mo Farrah will be among the 35,000-plus runners.

The mighty Mo's preparations for his eagerly-awaited April 15 appearance include competing in the New York Half Marathon. Richard, on the other hand, has been pursuing a somewhat less glamorous build-up, treading the country lanes around his Endon home.

His mission is to raise as much money as he can from sponsorship for the Rainbow Trust, which supports families of children with life-threatening or terminal illnesses.
