The mini marathon is the curtain raiser held over the final three miles of the official London Marathon course, finishing in front of the VIP stands in The Mall. Olympic champion Mo Farah is a former winner of the mini-marathon.

The chosen Cardiff athletes are:

Under 17 men: Jake Heyward.

Under 15 boys: Rhys Jones.
Under 15 girls: Abi Fisher, Naomi Reid and Megan Bowen.

If we have missed anyone please let us know.

There is also a team event in each of the age groups.

The Welsh Schools group will travel up to London on Saturday, in time for the start of the mini-marathon at 9 o'clock on Sunday morning.

Good luck and enjoy the experience.

Last year, John Cove finished in a magnificent 6th out of 275 finishers in the under 17 men's race.
