With teeth gritted, dentists run the London Marathon

There will be 102 dentists pounding the streets of London this Sunday (13 April).

They are just a fraction of the 48,363 runners taking part in this year’s Flora London Marathon.

Seventy male dentists and 32 female have hopefully been in training for the mass race that is predicted to attract half a million spectators along the 26.2-mile route through the capital, from Blackheath Park/Greenwich Common to The Mall.

Statistics from the organisers also reveal that 86 dental assistants will be joining the throng.

Last year, the London Marathon raised more than £46.5million for charity by its runners.

Good luck to all dental professionals taking part – and let us know how you got on!
