The trials are open to children aged 11 to 17 who either live in Brent, were born in the borough or go to school there.

And they will take place as part of the Gladstone parkrun on Saturday, February 3, with registration taking place from 8.30am, ahead of the race’s 9am start.

Youngsters interested in representing the borough need to register online at and bring their barcode to the event.

The London Mini Marathon was launched in 1986 and is held over the last three miles of the main course on the morning of the big race, which takes place on Sunday April 22 this year.

Brent will be competing against borough teams from all over London and regional teams from across the UK, with previous individual winners including Sir Mo Farah, David Weir, Hannah Cockroft and Non Stanford.
