ROADS around Marlow town centre will close on Sunday as the Marlow Half Marathon takes place.

The starter's pistol will fire at 9.30am for the 22nd installment of the event - notorious for being “one of the toughest” in England.

It sets off and finishes at the fields of Sir William Borlase’s Grammar School.

Oxford Road and Chalkpit Lane will be shut for the race, organised by Marlow Striders.

Cash is being raised for The Marlow Opportunity Playgroup and Marlow Sports Club.

Eddie O'Gorman reclaimed his title last year.
