Alyson Dixon on Glasgow 2014, her career and Flamingo Land

'My career began at Flamingo Land' - for long-distance runner Alyson Dixon, it all started at Flamingo Land. The 35-year-old from Sunderland will take on some of the world's best marathon runners at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow on Sunday. However, had it not been for her local running club's trip to the Yorkshire-based theme park and zoo, she may never have found herself in that position. Don't forget to cheer for her at the Commonwealth Games 2014 in Glasgow
