The list below contains the name and details of all supporters/runners who are in this support group. 

XFR Bear

Chicken 123
Alki & Mr Alki
Night Nurse
Prawnie & Mr Prawnie

The supporters need to know:

Forum name
Name (suggest you email this if unhappy to divulge via the forum)
Race number
Estimated time to mile 17
What you'll be wearing
Any special needs*

*Special Needs - All reasonable requests will be catered for i.e. SIS/High 5 gel, banana, Jelly Babies, boiled sweets etc, even lager & Guiness have been requested before. To be sure we have what you need or for more obscure requests please leave items at the Runners World stand at the registration Expo. Supporters will be collecting them Thursday, Friday & Saturday. Items should be marked with: name, race number & support group number.

Location of Support area

With approx 40,000 runners it is almost impossible to pick out individuals as they pass, therefore its important you know where to spot us.

The support area is on the right hand side of the road at the pelican crossing by mudchute DLR station. There is a water station immediately after the 17 mile point, pelican crossing is immediately after the water station. I will post a close of google map/google earth image of the area with exact location shortly.

Supporters will be standing in sequential group order along the course. The area will be festooned with blue and yellow balloons so should be easy to spot, when you get to us, look out for the support group numbers and go over to your respective group.

Please use this thread to ask any questions and look out for further information which will be posted up until the race. 

Good luck everyone..

*Jumps fence*

We'll make it official later

I won't need anything other than a shout and a wave so I hope nobody minds

Hello! Getting properly excited now. Probably won't need anything specific except an extra big cheer and perhaps a photo if you can manage it (massive narcissist, but not quite massive enough to buy the official race photos). It's my first marathon and I signed up for this before doing most of my training so didn't know whether I'd need anything or not, but the extra support will be very welcome!

Forum name: Literatin
Name: Katie
Race number: 283
Estimated time to mile 17: 12.03-12.08
What you'll be wearing: an unflattering white club vest with two blue hoops on the chest.
Any special needs: will probably drop a spare gel off at the expo so as not to have to carry too many, but don't panic if you don't get to give it to me.

Hi guys!  Really looking forward to being able to give back to the Mudchute group again this year

Bear and Tommygun I already know, but Kat, I don't think I've come across you before.  I look forward to meeting you on the day.

If it is ok with the other supporters I will set up a shreadsheet of everyone's details to get us started.

Welcome to the runners too.  There are a few familiar faces there but also a good selection of new people.  We are here to make your big day something special, so please let us know what we can do for you

02/04/2013 at 12:13

Mr P, it will be great to see you.  I've added you to my list and you better stop for a quick hug!

02/04/2013 at 12:17

Welcome literatin and Night Nurse.  Looks like we have some speedy runners this year.  You might even get to see us sober

02/04/2013 at 12:47

You mean you can't get p*ssed in over 2 hours? How disappointing.

02/04/2013 at 12:54

I'll try my best

Last year I had to leave at 6am to get there in time.  I think the first thing I drank all day was the cup of coffee after we had got everything else set up, then we started on the wine.  I don't think I ate anything all day except maybe some cake and a couple of jelly babies

Hello all

Missed all the fun last year as I was running the thing, wont be making that mistake again

02/04/2013 at 16:59

Yeah, have to say I'm slightly rethinking my 'gruelling 26.2 mile run' choice when the other option was 'cake and wine all day'.

02/04/2013 at 19:22

Not ALL day literatin.  I think I moved onto cider when we got to the pub afterwards

02/04/2013 at 21:20

I'll be stopping for a sweaty hug SuperCaz (even though I'm not in this group)

Who is likely to get there first, me or Cake?? (probably Cake).

02/04/2013 at 23:23

I suspect that you will Vixx.  Rumour has it that Cake has been slacking on training and spending his time... er... eating cake.  That doesn't sounds quite right somehow

02/04/2013 at 23:25

We weren't too far from each other at Manchester last year, so it could be there or thereabouts He'll possibly still get there before me

03/04/2013 at 08:41

Is anyone here going to be at the Expo on Thursday ?

Sorry to say that I will not be able to make it to London this year  Its my mothers 70th Birthday and we have arranged a big family lunch for her down in Dorset.......for some reason I had it in my mind that it was on the 28th but have just realised its on the same day


03/04/2013 at 18:14

Oh Tommy!  I was really looking forward to seeing you again.  So so disappointed
