Not sure why the editors changed my wording from "this was my eighth London Marathon" to "this was my eighth Flora London Marathon" because it's incorrect.  Two of them were Nutrasweet London Marathons, if we're going to get pedantic with sponsors' names.

Are RW obliged to change people's stories to refer to sponsors, or is this just a mistake?

Yes, I presume, as RW sponsor it too and have therefore signed a contract innit

Humph !
