Mexborough athlete Carl Ryde, pictured with daughters Molly and Emily, is intent upon making his mark in Sunday’s London Marathon.

“Having finished 29th overall in 2013 I am optimistic about bettering this and recording a new personal best,” he told the Free Press.

Ryde, a member of Doncaster Athletic Club, warmed up by finishing 13th in last month’s Wilmslow Half Marathon.

He won the Ferriby 10 (mile) event for the sixth successive year in January.
