London Marathon 22nd April 2012

Some of you will be aware of this recurring thread and may even have been waiting for it - the lurvely Bouncing Barlist usually organises it but is up to his very tall eyeballs at the moment so yours truly and Tickled Pink have said we'll pick up the baton!

Every year members of the forum arrange a support area at Mudchute, Docklands which is at about 17 miles.

Usually we have about 50+ supporters and well over 200 runners, the idea is runners are split between pairs of supporters that can give you that extra special cheer and provide any special needs such as gels, even cans of beer have been requested in the past. After the race we all meet up at a pub near Trafalgar Square.

Anyone is welcome to come along, help us support the race and join in the fun, its just one big party and a fantastic day out.

To begin with we need two lists:

Supporters (those forum members who can come along and support). 

Runners (forum names of runners; who would like that extra big cheer to get them through the last miles).


A month or so before the race we will split the supporters into teams, arrange all the logistics of what we need to bring etc and allocate the runners between the support teams.  Once this is done the support teams will contact all their runners to find out specific race day information e.g. predicted time, special needs, race number etc.

All are encouraged to meet up at 'the pub' Chandos, Trafalgar Square for many beers and stories of achievement after the race.

All those joining this thread, please ensure that your Runner's World messaging is enabled as this will be the only way we shall be able to contact you once the organisation gets into full swing in March. To enable messaging go into 'My Profile' and tick the tick box 'Message Me'.

Yeah, good luck with the coordination/organising

For anyone wondering, im not going to be involved to much this year as dont have the time but SBH & TP can surely do a better job, or at least be more glamourous whilst doing it

Well I'm not after your list job Schmunks.  My knowledge of the alphabet is rudimentary in the extreme.

Looking forward to seeing everyone and waving those pom poms whilst looking cool and glamorous ... yeah right .....

I can totally recommend the supporting bit.  It's the best fun you can have with your clothes on ....
