Dennis Doyle (played by Simon Pegg) is a man who can't commit to relationships, even stooping so low as to jilt his pregnant fiancée Libby at the altar. Libby comes back into his life a few years later with a superfit new boyfriend in tow, who is planning to whisk Libby and their son Jake away to America. Forced to confront his feelings about Libby, Dennis realises he needs to win her back and prove his worth - by competing against her new beau in the upcoming marathon. But will he be able to overcome his self-doubt and commit to the gruelling training regime?
