London Marathon latest from Purple13

The London Marathon has surely become one of the greatest participation sporting events ever created.

Thousands of runners from the serious world athletes to the thousands of fund raising runners, fun runners and atheletic clubs taking part, will share the endurance of the route around some of London's most famous landmarks and tourist spots on April 22nd.

Our own neighbour is also running this year's London Marathon after finally getting her application granted – something she's been trying to do for years, and she'll be hoping to raise lots of money as well as beat a personal best. She'll be one of the 46,500 runners lucky enough to get a place from over 80,000 applicants.

A record 32,899 runners crossed the finish line in 2002.

Apart from very sore feet, all of the runners will also share something else in common – a photograph of themselves crossing the finishing line.

So what better way to create a lasting reminder of your own or a loved ones participation in the London Marathon (or any other sporting event for that matter) then having a marathon day memory made into a fabulous personalised photo gift – perhaps a photo jigsaw puzzle or why not try our newest personalised photo gift idea – the photo CD clock.

Our jigsaws are available in 13 different size and backing options from 24 piece to 2000 piece including fun fridge magnet magnetic backed jigsaws, and feature free box printing and free delivery.

Our photo CD clocks are available ready built and ready to hang, or in simple build yourself kit form. Both options come with an attractive clear acrylic stand to use as a desk clock.

Our best wishes and congratulations to all the athletes taking part in this years London Marathon and in particular to our neighbour, who's raising money for the Holbrook Centre for Autism.
