• Marathon: road closures and ukes this Sunday

The Jam play runners through Riverside Park during last year's marathon

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!"
