London Marathon 21st April 2013

Some of you will be aware of this recurring thread and may even have been waiting for it and it's yours truly on the case again this year with the help of some other lovely peeps

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'.

Where did this other list come from?

08/01/2013 at 15:24

We seem to have dropped some and gained some. 

08/01/2013 at 15:25

T'other list is from the 'Early Plea' thread - I'll sort it out when I get home later and then we'll all be right

SBH, you are a star. And I've always said that
