Cumbrians on their marks

The final preparations are underway for this year's Great Cumbrian Run, which takes place on Sunday.

The half marathon has become a local institution since being set up 32 years ago.

It's expected to attract around 2,000 runners to the city.

Tom Rice, of Carlisle Leisure Limited, is expecting tens of thousands to be raised for charity.
