Don't see why not, especially if you treat it as a training run rather than an A race

Liberty - if TGI works for you, there's one at the 02. Hop on the cable car from ExCel, it's a 5 minute ride. From there you can get the Jubilee line back into town. Shouldn't be as busy as central London.

Funnily enough, other people ask questions on here too.  Hmm, self centred and can only do one thing at a time.  Must be a bloke

I haven't been on it, but yes, it's a real cable car. It's part of the London transport system too, so if you have an Oyster card you can use that to pay for it.

And, er, yes, fishface2, you can do a 5 mile race before a marathon. But I wouldn't recommend racing it flat out.

So could you use a 1 day travel card?

I've been on that cable car, was a really long queue but it quickly disappeared.

is this a marathon thread or a london transport idiot i dont how to get about thread i wonder

A lot of people don't live in London, like me so please don't refer to us as idiots. I would say this is a general thread that yes includes questions that aren't about running, but people can ask anything they want so everyone knows answers to their questions taking away any extra stresses. As to some of us running a marathon is a very big task. So I apologise if non running talk upsets you.

We went on the cable car last time we were in London, it's good fun!

On the subject of food, a few years ago another forumite took me to Stockpot near Trafalgar Square, do you know it RR?

It was real school dinner stuff, but we got spaghetti bolognese starter, a big dinner and a slab of cake for a tenner and we were in and out in less than an hour.

Dear ff

If you'd care to check back, this thread is specifically to deal with logistics for a named group of runners and supporters for this year's London Marathon. For generic questions re 'should I go for a run today', the Beginners or Training threads might suit you better.

13/04/2013 at 08:15
