Ok then, I have done this for the last 2 years and it seems to have been quite popular.

Please sponsor me here minimally 7 pounds and you get a dvd with the tv coverage (main and highlights) plus a dvd of the finish line when you cross it (assuming you crossed it before the BBC stopped showing it, which is usually about start + 6 hrs)

I am meeting all the production and P&P costs myself.

Email me thru the runners world 'email me' link (click on my profile) and obvuiously include your full name, finish time and address. Make sure that I can match you to the name you sponsor me under. Your running number might also be handy.

I am still up in the smoke right now so won't start doing it until late next week, and won't be able to reply to emails until Tues 15th, but please do start sponsoring me and mailing me your details now.

Hi Welsh Alex

 I was delighted with my DVD you sent last year so, yes please, can I have another one? I've donated to your online site and emailed you my details. Thanks for offering this great service again as no-one was at home to record coverage for me!

Many thanks

Tutu, yes, stomach ok this year. Targeted sub 3:15 and got 3:15:11 so fairly happy. Just should never have stopped for a pee at mile 5 ! How did you do ?

WA, I took advantage of your offer back in 2006.

Great idea, we get DVD, you get sponsorship money, everyones a winner,

Fair play to you

How did you and the Mrs get on?

Yes would be interested - will e-mail you details.

Dont spose you have the BBC1 6pm news yesterday too as apparently I was on it!!!!

14/04/2008 at 15:04


If you e-mail me your address I will send cheque. How did you manage to get everyone go through the finish line?

14/04/2008 at 15:16

Mrs Stoat, once the main BBC1 feed cuts off at 2pm (4h15), you get a screen split into 4 showing just the cameras at the finish and anyone who crosses the line (for an hour or two) is seen then - usually on interactive digital (red button, Ch700 or whatever)
