Dermot, who is returning to run the Bath Half Marathon, took time out to speak to Bath Chronicle reporter Liza-Jane Gillespie.
He said: "I had such a good time last year, apart from the one hour 47 when I was running.
"I love the city, it's a beautiful city, everyone turns out to support you.
"It is a lovely city to run aournd."
And Greg, who is taking on the event for the first time said: "I love bath very much. I only ever walked around it and got drunk here.
"I've had nice dinners here and stuff and good nights out and DJ here a few times at the University.
"I hope I love it as much as I do now afterward. If it's awful today I may never want to come back."
