Celebrity Rhapsody


A host of celebrities have joined together to recommend their top tunes for runners who are planning to take part in the Virgin London Marathon for The Prostate Cancer Charity and Breast Cancer Care, together known as TeamPB.

DJs Edith Bowman and Fearne Cotton have offered their favourite tracks to keep runners pounding the streets in the lead up to the iconic race and, of course, on the big day itself.

In addition to their selections, comedian Harry Hill, BBC Sports presenter, Gabby Logan and music talents Scouting for Girls and Bombay Bicycle Club will provide their choice of musical inspiration for those running to raise money for the two charities.

Thus far, more than 570 have committed to running the London Marathon for TeamPB and hope to raise more than £1 million. Owen Sharp, Chief Executive of The Prostate Cancer Charity, commented: "It's great that so many celebrities have got behind TeamPB, either by contributing a playlist or by taking on the huge challenge of the race itself."

People who won their Virgin London Marathon place can still be part of TeamPB by signing up at their website.
