Oh Gladrags I'm so sorry!!! I worked off the last list in the thread so it may be that there's been some omissions in copying and pasting

Like Rob says, rock over to the Wicked One's, we'll welcome you with open arms!!

Another looking for a welcome with arms, open rather than loaded.

I haven't posted my name before because I'm a bit slow on the uptake, and irregularly in and out of here.  Anyway, I'm running, and would love someone to hand me gels and throw water over me at mile 17!  Any takers?

If it is OK with SBH and TP then you are welcome to join Group 3

Cheers, SuperCaz!  I'll find your thread and figure out what I have to do.  Contacted SBH and she was happy with anyone who could picking me up, so I'll see you in there.  Hopefully my needs will be light and simple...

Anyone want to welcome another runner? Family can't make the race so I'll be lonely

Sister Bad Habit has told me to linger on this thread until someone adopts me!..... *waits patiently*

20/03/2012 at 13:59
bloody long wait LOL
20/03/2012 at 14:03
Be patient James.  One of us will have you, but as I've already adopted an additional one I am willing to give the other groups a chance first.
20/03/2012 at 14:19
Come over to Group 4, James
20/03/2012 at 14:21
YEY! See you there!

One thing that I asked on my group thread was: Is there anything that the runners can bring the supporters for your trouble (e.g. jaffa cakes/beer etc).... to be able to keep you occuped whilst you're waiting for us?

I'm planning to write my number on my arm so I don't forget

Oh Emmy, that's really sweet of you!

Nothing special for me (I'll probably bring a flask of coffee or check out where the nearest Starbucks/Costa/etc is) but thank you so much for asking x

Emmy, there is a general request for money which we can use to buy some of the supplies for the runners so that we don't ahve to drag 20 tonnes of jelly babies from all across the country.

I will be making the supporters a cake.  It's tradition.  Cake goes everywhere with me.

We'll be popping in as usual.- drinking far too much and cheering excitedly.  There's a supermarket very close to the support point  so the supporters usually fair pretty well.

 (I've not read back, it is in the same place as usual etc isn't it?)

20/03/2012 at 16:56
Yes, it's the same spot.  This year I have remembered that the supermarket doesn't open until 11.  Every year we are queuing up outside at 10 as we always forget.
