Sweetestthing thanks - but are you starting at red??
I am starting at green and there doesnt appear to be any RWpacers there?
would be great it could meet you as the routes join but not very likely..

FoxyT - not sure what green means! dont panic though..what time you thinking of now - im looking at 6 i guess
14/04/2005 at 14:03
Nicola, doesn't green merge with blue fairly early on? I think in under a mile (look in the Marathon News we got recently). So you could catch up with the RW pacers then, otherwise you then merge with Red start at just before 3 miles, so look out for Danni and me there.

Nicola Wood
Bit of a bummer about the lack of pace groups at green as I am a lousy self pacer and never wear a watch - Will get one soon! Ideally no longer than 5 hours.

Support at this point would be great. 17 miles is where the 6 weeks out with injury will start to show, I think!!

Staying in London over the weekend with partner,Tania. She's looking for somewhere to support from and hopefully have company. I'm more stressed about her being on her own than actually running the blessed thing!
Can she look for a specific team?

Im 18607, Normski, with a white sleeveless top adorned with my company logo - Clinovia.

Sweetest Thing and Nicola,

I'll be coming in from Weybridge but no trains apparantly! I can't get to the start until about 8.10am now..Nicola what number at you? ST, I'll see you at the Bandstand about 8.20ish? What time are you planning on getting there? Danni
14/04/2005 at 14:14
would it be a good idea to put our formulite on front of vest
trouble is I may get mistaken
14/04/2005 at 14:19
Danni, I am going to try and get in for about the same time as you. I'm sure we'll spot each other!

I'm coming in from Oxted and they don't have any early trains either. Might drive to Croydon and get a train from there.

Majorly wibbly now!

Normski..I'm running for a charity, Tania could stand with them/near them and cheer you on, I'm sure they'll be more than happy to have her with them..as long as you're not running for another charity I take it?! At least you will know exactly where Tania will be. I would say she could stand with my friends and family but not quite sure where they are going to be yet...somewhere on the Highway I think.
Lyndylou, are you in the red start? If so you can join myself and Sweetest Thing and be cheered on by the RW Support at mile 17! What time are you aiming for? Danni
14/04/2005 at 14:25
Hey World Champion, you are a bike fan I see?! Me too! Danni

Danni -

14/04/2005 at 15:01
I am number 189 and a cheer would be much appreciated. I'll be in navy shorts and vest with go-faster turquoise stripes!! My boyfriend is spectating for the first time - he usually runs it - and I am hoping that he will at least get to see me a couple of times!

Good luck to everyone - I am sooooo nervous!
14/04/2005 at 16:43
Does anyone know how far the Greenwhich Park bandstand is from the red start and how far is that from Blackheath station because that's where I'll be coming in to ?
14/04/2005 at 18:12
I live just right around the 13th Mile mark! (Shadwell) I will be there to cheer everyone on!!

14/04/2005 at 18:48
Never been into a chat room before but this has proved amazing - I'm majorly terrified and also have missed 6 weeks through injury (Normski). Feel a lot more normal now!

I'm on Blue start and definitely a plodder rather than a hare!

14/04/2005 at 19:30
Hello! Good luck everyone. I'm number 36419 and I'll be in a red Childline shirt with 'Lame Jane' on it (yep, also been out for a few weeks with injury!)
14/04/2005 at 20:48
Hi I'm number 3532 on the blue start wearing Dawlish Coaster T'shirt and running for Mission to Deep Sea Fishermen.
I'm very excited second FLM hoping to improve on 2001 time.
Goood Luck everyone.

Evening all. First time for me too. I'm red start, pen 9, 35063 sporting a fetching bright red Heart Runners t-shirt. Running in memory of my dad who died aged 43 in 1980. Just want to finish to make him proud. All cheers of encouragement gratefully received!

Aiming to finish in daylight, although 5 hours or under would be just splendid. See you all there (ps plan to have many packs of Jelly Babies secreted about my person - catch me if you can!!).

Good luck to you all on Sunday. I didn't get in unfortunately, but did the Paris marathon last Sunday. It was my first and the greatest experience of my life. One important bit of advice is don't try and run too close to the pace makers. I started behind the 3hrs 30 hares and it was very congested. I saw a couple of people tumble as a result. I managed to get in front of them and kept a safe distance where there was loads of space and it was far less stressful. Don't fall into the trap of getting too close. Have a great time.

Hi All,
I'm 55813 wearing a white vest and would really appreciate a cheer.Thanks again-Mike

oh gosh probably way too late but it would be great of i can get a boost! I'm 44896 and will be dressed as in the pic (haha knew there was a reason for taking that photo!!) a black knee support may also be in evidence...and slight limp though am hoping not!

any other red starters fancy plodding with me?
