Two of the region's half marathons take place today. Hundreds are expected at Basingstoke's annual event - with organisers warning of road closures in and around the town. While in Oxfordshire four thousand people are expected to pound the parkland of Blenheim Palace.
Roger Bannister - the first man to run a mile in less than four minutes will launch the event. Money raised there will go towards the British Heart Foundation.
