Team Baker will run the London Marathon.

Three members of the same family will run in the London Marathon on April 26.

David Baker, his wife Steph and eldest son Sam, 18, will join 40,000 people for the annual event. It will be the first time David and Sam have run a marathon. Steph took part two years ago. They all ran the Nottingham half marathon in October.

The family, from Barkston, are raising money for the Royal British Legion which Steph supported when she last ran the marathon in the capital.

David is a GP at the Vine Street practice in Grantham and Steph works as a cardiac technician at Grantham Hospital. David said: “I was quite keen to do a marathon. We work a lot with ex-Services people so it was a charity Steph had an affinity for and there are a lot of Services families living in Lincolnshire.”

David started running only six months ago to train for the marathon. Steph has been running for three or four years. David says Sam will run on ahead of his parents.

David is raising money at the surgery in Vine Street and they will be in the Isaac Newton Centre on Saturday (March 21). The family hopes to raise £5,500 and has a fund-raising page at team/Baker3
