At least 47 people from the university representing for a wide range of good causes completed the 26-mile course on 26 April.

Margaret Glover (Deputy Faculty Manager, UCL Division of Biosciences), who ran for the Alzheimer's Research Trust, said: "It's an incredible experience, I'd recommend it to anyone.
