PUPILS and staff of Ysgol Maesydderwen in Ystradgynlais are donning their running shoes to take part in the World Marathon Challenge next week.
They will be joining runners from 40 countries for the global race when junior and adult teams from around the world will run simultaneously.
The main World Marathon Challenge competition is for mixed teams made up of equal numbers of boys and girls from the same school, in the 13 and under category.
There are additional competition categories for single gender teams, non-school teams and teams of older runners.
Organisers recommend that primary school teams enter the 1500m Challenge instead of completing the full marathon.
Ysgol Maesydderwen, who are letting any student who wants to attend the event run 200 metres, will be raising funds for Save the Children and The Golau Cancer Charity.
