HERE are the amazing people who completed the London Marathon on Sunday. 

Completing a marathon is one of the greatest challenges. Running 26.2 miles? Most of us couldn't even imagine doing it. 

But, some brave individuals take on the challenge to raise money for vital charities every year. 

On Sunday, April 21, more than 50,000 people headed to London to complete the marathon. 

No matter how long it took them, everyone is victorious once they have crossed that finish line. 

On our Facebook page, we asked readers to share their success stories.
