Pavey, who has done two marathons in her career in London 2011 and NY later that year when she set a personal best of 2:28:24 admitted: "I'll be thrilled to receive the medal on home soil".
The women's race is also intriguing, with twice-winner Mary Keitany installed as favourite after last year's London and Olympic champion and fellow Kenyan Jemima Sumgong pulled out after failing a doping test. Sumgong's positive for the blood booster EPO brought stinging criticism from some of her compatriots ahead of the race.
She said: "I didn't want the marathon training to affect my normal life".
"Whilst I only have a couple of scars to show my distressing encounter with Henoch-Schönlein purpura, many people are not so fortunate", he said.
Keitany, 35, who won the London Marathon in 2011 and 2012 and finished second in 2015, is in top form, according to her long-time manager, Gianni Demadonna, who spoke to Race Results Weekly last Saturday in Boston.

"Times are very important", Bekele said. Winning in two hours, four minutes would be a different feeling.
But despite her 43 years, there can not be too many who would back against the athlete her national newspapers have dubbed "Supermum", the woman who made history as the oldest female European champion in 2014 by winning the 10,000m and has appeared in five consecutive Olympics.
"But it's really challenging".
Tanzania's long-distance prodigy Alphonce Felix Simbu has arrived in London ready for the London Marathon due on Sunday. It is nearly 10,000 metres pace so it is hard.

Bekele was third in London previous year and said he really enjoyed and learned from the experience. I had won everything I could win and had world records. At the Quad-City Times Bix 7 Mile in Davenport, Iowa, she broke Susan Chepkemei's 12-year old course record, then smashed the TD Beach to Beacon 10-K course record in Cape Elizabeth, Me., running away from the field in a personal best 30:45. As anyone who has run a family home knows, it takes a bit of stamina, and this particular athlete has plenty of that in the tank for both of the big parts of her life.
