Marathon runners
The Cornish Marathon has now been running for 25 years

Over 200 runners from around the world are expected to race in this Sunday's 25th Cornish Marathon.

The race, which starts and finishes in the village of Pensilva and sees runners race across Bodmin Moor, is one of the toughest marathons in the UK.

Racers will be coming from as far afield as the United States, South Korea and South Africa.

"Competitors will have to deal with some tricky valleys and steep climbs," said race director Hillary Clatworthy.
