The Great South Run takes place in 10 days' time, with 25,000 people pounding the pavements around Portsmouth.
For the mother of Corporal Matthew Hatfield it will be a very special and poignant journey. The 27-year-old soldier was killed after a tank exploded during a training exercise in June. So his mum and other family members are running in his memory.
