TWO city runners are to take part in the Paris Marathon this Sunday.


Maria Miles and Steven Flowers are both members of Wye Valley Runners.


"I've had a few niggles, which is to be expected, but training has been going really well," said Miles.


"I started just before Christmas and have been on a 15-week training plan."


Miles ran the London Marathon last year and said she really enjoyed it.


"I did it in three hours 33 minutes, so my target is to better that time," she said.


Miles is raising money for the Little Princess Trust, a county charity that provides real hair wigs for children who have lost hair due to cancer.
