SNAPSHOT: Run rabbit run

A mobile phone and a bunny girl were among the people running for the children's charity Whizz-Kidz in last Sunday's Flora London Marathon. More than 600 people ran for the charity to raise £1 million.

Around 34,000 runners took part in the 22nd marathon - the biggest annual fundraising event in the UK. A biannual survey of runners showed that in the year 2000, 76 per cent of participants were running for charity and raised a total of £24 million. This year's event is expected to raise more than £25 million for charity. Pantomime cows, spider men, Save the Rhino rhinos, telephone boxes and firemen with ladders were just a few of this year's fun-runners, livening up the event and raising millions for charity.

A team of 37 runners helped to raise £50,000 for the Royal National Institute for Deaf People's Sound Start for Deaf Children appeal.
