North London runners have completed the London Marathon in aid of a host of causes close to their hearts.
On Sunday (October 3), the inspiring fundraisers endured the 26-mile route through central London, alongside tens of thousands of people from across the UK.
Celia Webster, 55, from Muswell Hill, raised over £4,500 for disability charity Sense, in honour of her 20-year-old daughter Maia.
Celia, who called herself "not a natural runner", had completed the marathon virtually last year.
Belsize Park-based New Zealander Chloe Bodley ran the London Marathon in memory of brother-in-law Josh Stanton.
She raised more than £5,000 for charity Brain Tumour Research, and said she had an overwhelming sense of "pride" and "relief" as she crossed the finish line.
Chloe said: "I know Josh will be so proud.”
