We need more supporters for the VLM. 

We are well short of the minimum 20-25 supporters to make up the 10 suport teams. 

If you would like to come along and join us at mile 17 here is the thread link (please add your name to the supporters list).

Mile 17 FAQ

Was just wondering Barley if an IM style feed station could work if the numbers don't come through. Could have special needs, for those that do drop off gels etc split into a few groups as part of that?

C'mon sign up people.  I've done it for the last few years and it's great fun.  I'd be there this year but I'm on the other side of the fence and I'd rather like somebody there to return the hospitality

I will go if I can but as usual can't committ to anything more than a week or so ahead - work is too unstable.  Unless this clashes with a local Duathlon I have agreed to marshall

I would again cos it is great fun but i've got to be elsewhere on the course on mara day, still be cheering you all on though.

This is always a brilliant day out

I think I'd much rather be there than running it lol, had a brilliant day out supporting the last two years! Sadly with a deferred place I spose I ought to go for a jog instead.

The RW support point is right outside mudchute DLR station, very easy to get to

count me in as a support bartley, can I be in Sweetest things group? 

 I'll do what I can, not sure i'll be able to stand all day with my back as it is but will deffo help as much as I can

Another Boing for this thread..

I'm 90% sure I can support .  Will confirm later in the week.

15/03/2011 at 21:09
I'll see what I can do to get a few people out on the day. I'll be dragging my other half along any way.

I would if I wasn't running! I guess I will be giving something back next year though, for the support I have been in receipt of over the last two years.

Please may I be in Soupy's group if she does support?

16/03/2011 at 10:50

I suggest those who are coming, or who want to request a particular group, say so on the main thread.

18/03/2011 at 10:02
Boing! Please come and support us
18/03/2011 at 12:02
I plan to come along on the day but can't commit to times etc.  Hopefully I'll get to cheer a few of you on.
18/03/2011 at 12:06

I'm deffo supporting all day and going to the pub afterwards as well.  Well as I've got a request it would be rude not to. 

Any more??  Come on - I've not done this propper before but having taken advantage of the mile 17 team its only right to give something back.  I popped in for a bit last year and it was great fun, especially all the champagne going round at 11am.   

18/03/2011 at 13:24
Oh yes, it's a proper street party. Asda just down the road so you don't need to cart food and drink there, you can go and buy it

Did someone mention champagne???!!!

Can you keep a swig back for me when I finally plod by? That would help ease the pain of miles 24-26.2....

Boing to keep this on the top page.

This is an excellent chance to meet other forumites at Mile 17 as well as offer help and support (physical and mental) to all those taking part in VLM.

I did it last year and it was a right ol' hoot. 

If you think Will's and Kate's wedding is gonna be the highlight of April, you have not been to Mile 17 on Marathon Day

So c'mon and join the party.
