But this year will be different for Glenique Frank, who will compete for the first time as a woman.

Glenique said: "I need help from all the fabulous people of Daventry.

"If everyone donated just £1 that would be wonderful, fabulous, fantastic."

Running for charity, Glenique as Batman.

Glenique has smashed 14 consecutive London Marathons and other events all dressed as Batman.

"This year I'll be Batwoman," Glenique added.

"It will be my 20th marathon overall as I’ve completed events in Sydney, Edinburgh and Paris. I even did two marathons in one day for the ultra marathon in South Africa and all as Batman."

Last year Glenique took part in a virtual marathon due to the coronavirus lockdown.

The fundraiser added: "I ran around Draycote Water six times as Batman and now I'm a Guinness World Record holder along with 27,000 other virtual runners."

This year, Glenique is hoping to raise £2,000 for the NSPCC.

"Please support this amazing charity," said Glenique.
