They say it’s been suggested that the average time to run the London Marathon is 4 hours, 6 minutes and 8 seconds, so they’ll attempt to play for that time, raising money for charities The Society of St James and No Limits as they sing and strum.

Sponsorship is of SUJ as a whole, rather than of individual players, and real sponsorship forms, “like you used to have at school” will be in use.

Jam co-founder Colin McAllister said: "SUJ are training hard for this challenge. We're nervous, we're excited and we're looking forward to shouting and singing at the runners. Find a member of The Jam and sponsor them!"
