Flora, well their parent company Unilever, have decided not to be involved in the London marathon in 2009 and the front runner to take the mantle at the moment is Tesco.

Is this a good or bad thing?

Will you be able to get "value runners" 

Will the elites have to run in blue and white stripes?

well, leans over to whisper ....................................... it's a bit of insider knowledge Meldy,(gossip)

I massaged this guy at the Expo from the marketing dept at Unilever and he told me. It sounded genuine.

Unilever (Flora) are pulling out, he Tesco bit is still under discussion, but he said they were the frontrunners to take over the mantle.

We'll see
