Does anyone have any news?
Ok...great day at VLM but sadly i passed a runner being given heart massage just be military barracks by mile 26 at Buck Palace.
Does anyone know how they are?
Ah shit..thanks HC.
It'snot unique - I've done two half maras in the last couple of years were someone has collapsed and died at or near the finish.
It is incredibly sad. So young and so suddenly.
My thoughts go out to her family and friends.
Can you assure us you're genuine and not chasing a story?
I would be very surprised if the family aren't being given the fullest possible information possible by the authorities

She is my friend's sister. I'm absolutely devastated for the family. If the family want anymore details Flat Foo.ted would you be able to help? I don't think they have been told much yet.
Perhaps the dead lady's family have been given as much info as there is at the moment.
To determine the cause of death often requires a post mortem, which takes time.
florian, I don't know how you want me to prove that I'm genuine. And to be honest I am sickened that you are even accusing me of chasing a story. I know there are people who do that sort of thing, but not me..
I'm sure the family will get all the information there is from the authorities. I just wanted them to be able to contact someone if they felt they needed to, who saw Claire in her final moments. I know how comforting any pieces of information like this are when someone dies in tragic circumstances.
To be honest florain, I wish you'd kept your opinions to yourself. You've made a perfectly innocent post into something it's not and made a difficult time, so much worse.
I understand what you mean. But that is not my intentions. x
I can fully understand your friend's family's need to try to get an idea of what happened and Claire's final moments. While it may not take any of the pain away, I can still see why they would feel the urge to know as much as possible from official sources as well as any official ones that one could identify.
I don't know if you have considered looking at her Just Giving page?
Some of the donations came from people who witnessed her being given treatment following her collapse.
Maybe a tiny bit of comfort or pride for the family also, that Claire's target of £500 for the Samaritans now stands at in excess of £21k worth of donations.
Look after your friend. x
