The full distance is 42.195km but the other metric on James Walton's mind as he tackles his 22nd consecutive London Marathon tomorrow morning is one millimetre.

The Briton, Deloitte's South-east Asia sports business group leader and travel, hospitality and services sector leader, is running to raise $25,000 for social service organisation AWWA but is mindful of a serious knee injury he is carrying. He has raised $15,000 so far.
