Matt - I think the 'too late' is Mick's idea of a joke.
Mile 17 supports anyone and everyone. If they know what you look like then all the better.
There's always jelly babies for anyone - whether you want them or not.
And relax. There's nothing you can do now. Make sure you are well rested and well hydrated. Do something to take your mind off it for the week, like going to work or something. On the day you'll be fine, you'll be with one hell of a lot of other runners so try and enjoy it. It's going to be loud and crowded. There's tons of support along the way. All you have to do is get from the start to the finish. No worries.
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
yes, been really making them keg their pants
bless u old mate
we'll just be two strays hanging around
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!)
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.
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!
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 times.......it'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
