Paying tribute to the Wearside runners who show such dedication - are you pictured?
Around 45,000 runners will be tackling the Virtual London Marathon this weekend. But we want to celebrate the brilliant people who take to the streets closer to home.
We have selected a series of images from the Sunderland Echo archives and each of them shows people on a running mission over the years.
Were you pictured tackling a 10k or running through the city.
Were you caught on camera as you completed the 5k to support the Armed Forces heroes? Take a look and relive the memories.
