Paula Radcliffe is set to end her marathon career at London Marathon in April. Though the 41-year-old has won the event three times in the past, she has not been named as one of the elite runners.
Radcliffe last competed over 26.2 miles at Berlin Marathon in 2011, and hasn't run in London Marathon since her victory there in 2005.
Race director, Hugh Brasher, said: "We are absolutely thrilled that Paula has chosen London for her final marathon and we know the British crowds will be out in force on 26 April to celebrate her extraordinary career." She will take on defending champion Edna Kiplagat and last year's runner-up Florence Kiplagat.
