Lockley in elite entry at London Marathon

Manx athlete one of only 40 competing

Manx athlete Ollie Lockley is one of only 40 elite runners in the 40th London Marathon.

The delayed and trimmed down event will be held on a closed circuit in St James's Park and will still have the iconic finish on The Mall.

Lockley is aiming to break the long-standing Manx record of 2 hours, 23 minutes and 34 seconds set by David Cowell at the 1974 Commonwealth Games in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Ollie will be in action from 10:15.
