Runners - more than 40,000 of them - will reclaim the capital’s streets for the 38th time on 22 April. They’ll be in various states of readiness to tackle what the London Marathon’s co-founder, the late Chris Brasher, dubbed the ‘suburban Everest’.

Trainspotting might be one of the biggest cult classics of the 20th century, but only the most ardent fans of Danny Boyle’s smash hit film, or Irvine Welsh’s original novel, would truly want to rub shoulders with its tortured, damaged characters. With that being said,...

As part of London's power women running tour, we visit one of the 20th century's most important and trailblazing authors, Virginia Woolf.
