Being a FLM virgin, on race day I'm intending to get a train from where I live (Bedfordshire) into Kings Cross. Sunday "engineering works" does concern me!
A couple of questions:
1. The best way to get from Kings Cross to the Start?
2. How long should I allow to get from Kings Cross to the Start?

Would appreciate any advice.

I would allow 30 mins to get from your train to Charing Cross, by the route outlined above by SB.

You could get the train straight down on the northern line from Kings X to London Bridge (5 stops) and board the train there (where it also stops).

How about Thameslink direct to London Bridge and train to start from there.

trains are packed from Charing cross, very difficult to get on at LB.

Just on this subject- I seem to remember the walk from the train station to the start was a good 20-30 mins (including a stop down some side-street due to too much pre-race Lucozade), plus you need to find the lorry to drop your kit off etc... so make sure you include some time for all that!

So if you get to London Bridge, is it quicker to go off to Charing Cross and then come back again ?

Don't worry you will be able to get on the train at London Bridge - it's crowded but that's all part of the atmosphere. Plus there will also be some non-marathon trains running (ha ha !). Do not consider going back to Charing Cross.
