Haha, The man's a comic genius.. I was in panic there! Haha.  Thank you Caz! I appreciate it, what do I do now?

What do you do now?

(a) find a link on the previous page for group 5 thread, go there, and tell us about yourself, what you want at mile 17.

(b) Find us at mile 17 on the day, because we can't find you. Just turn up and receive cheers, hugs, water, wine, carbs, whatever you need

(c) relax and rest between now and then, do nothing stressful

To be fair, group 5 says "other support groups are available"

Other support groups are indeed available  and they need to be picking up their fair share of the late adoptees so SC, whilst it's great that you scoop them all up  don't overload yourself and the other supporters in Group 3.  I do toddle along every day to see if there are any needing adopted and I allocate them round the 6 groups.

Oh and as per Candy's thread, the whole Mudchute enterprise including DLR station and the ASDA have been relocated to Regents Park   I though somewhere near the zoo would work ....

we'll just be two strays hanging around

TP, I will be out of contact after today so if any more straglers come along then they will have to go elsewhere.

That's grand SC, I really appreciate your help but I don't want your lot to get bogged down whilst the rest of us are having it a bit easier.

Enjoy your time away if it's fun stuff, get through it by thinking about the weekend if it's not!

Mick, any strays will be rounded up by the dog catcher and taken off to Battersea ....

We have less than 20 still as a lot of people dropped out or didn't get back to us.

Most if it is fun stuff, but there is a funeral thrown in too.  I'm a bit concerned that with all the late nights I could be exhausted by Sunday and the alcohol will go straight to my head.

Does anyone know what time you are supposed to be at the start for?  (min and max would be useful!)

16/04/2012 at 11:19

Marshals get there for 7am, so there's not much point getting there before then as they won't be fully set up.

Otherwise I would recommend between 1 and 2 hours before your start, probably aiming closer to the 2 hours than the one.

Good work on all the organising

I'll be at Mudchute on Sunday, though not sure what times yet.  I know or have heard from another dozen or so people who are also intending to go along at various times so there should be quite a big group as usual.

See you all on Sunday.

Hello everyone,

This will be my first ever marathon. 1 year ago, I could not even run 10 minutes.

I've spent the last year training and am going to need all the support I can get. I am still not sure what time I will hit mile 17 but am hoping to average 10 minute miles.

Can I join in? My race number is 54015. I will be in a lime green Docklands Settlements vest top.

My name is Joyce.

Let me know!

Hello peeps!!!

Newbie32, pop over to the Group 4 thread and tell em I sent you

I've got a logistical head on today so have been sorting out my train'll be the 06.14 from Chatham to Lewisham and DLR from there to the 'Chute so I'll be onsite around 8am. Everyone keep your fingers crossed - I ordered the red and white barrier tape on Saturday so I'm just hoping it turns up on time!!!

Becks will be dropping the banners off at the RW stand at the Expo so that's all sorted too - my plan is to try and get the area taped off and the banners up using cable ties so that when other bods arrive we can crack on with the balloons etc

Hi Barley, will be great to see you.  I am sure there will be a crowd as usual.

Not sure what time I will get there - about 8am if I get the 0644 but the next train isn't until 0730 so that will make it nearer 9 but you'll cope without me and I am crap with a balloons anyway.

I am still not sure about what's happening with the helium but our man in the know is sorting it out.
