*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 market 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, there will also be a large '100 yards to RW Supporters' sign hung up. When you get to us, look out for the support group numbers and go over to you're respective group.

Please use this thread to ask any questions and look out for further information which will be posted up until the race. Any final instructions will be posted Sunday 18th April.

Good luck everyone..

Forum name: Zaba

Name Eva surname will come in a later email

Race number: Blue start 15000 something due to paranoia exact number in later email

Estimated time to mile 17: Hoping to du just under 4 hours but realistically under 4.30, so will pass mile 17 between 2.35 to 2.54 probably, although not sure what time I'll pass the start line.

No really love Gatorade Lemon which is hard to get hold of in central London but will give this some more thought.

 Your doing a brilliant job, thanks.

Name - Matt (Surprisingly)

Race number - 37740
Estimated time to mile 17 - Difficult, what time will I start exactly? But hopefully between 2hrs 15 - 2hrs 35

Any special needs* - Will drop a muffin off at expo on Saturday.

 Hope everyone is well this lovely (not hehe) Wednesday and you've all managed your last long runs over the weekend and are now set to taper. I'm so excited to be the 'other side of the fence' this year lol - I crawled my way round the FLM last year in a one time only attempt and so much respect to all you guys this year!

I'll be popping in usually a couple or five times a day so if there's anything you need keep me posted!

Hi guys, not long to go, getting exciting. 

This is my 2nd year at the supporters area after running in 2007 and 2008.   Looking forward to seeing everyone down there.

Gill xx

Hi Gill I bow to your experience on the supporters side  - will message you a bit later on? xx
07/04/2010 at 13:12

Can't wait, getting really excited now

07/04/2010 at 14:40
I'm getting excited too, where are the rest of group 10 then, hello Gilly Mac and Karen S, don't squash  my muffin
07/04/2010 at 14:44
We'll take good care of it, promise not to snaffle it myself
07/04/2010 at 14:52

I'll fight you for it Gill! Only kidding, I'm an angel really...................... lol

Now then runners, I'm going to keep a spreadsheet with all your details on and I'll sort it by times expected - and for anyone who's worried, we will be waiting until everyone on the list has gone through so don't worry if you're a bit slower than others we'll still be there  

For anyone who isn't planning to stop for long if at all but just wants a wave and a cheer as you go through, please could you make sure you let us know you've gone past if possible? That way we won't get all paranoid if we haven't ticked you off the list  and we'll make sure we have everything ready for people if you drop stuff off at the Expo..........please please make sure it's clearly labelled as Barley says with your name, race number and support group.

I'll be the one with the Pinot in one hand and a whistle in the other........!

07/04/2010 at 15:11
Pinot in one hand and whistle in the other, I dread to think how your going to hold my muffin

What you'll be wearing Yellow Zurich vest, blue shorts, better wear trainers - blue cap if sunny or raining!

Very carefully lol 

And Ian, I'm sure I don't know what you mean.....................hehe!! Are you sure the Zurich vests are yellow this year, they were blue last year

07/04/2010 at 16:33

maybe blue then - I would know if I had it!  Apparently it is in the post...

Look out carefully tonight and you will see me heading out in a lovely red and white vest just to get used to the idea

07/04/2010 at 16:41
Have fun - it was raining about ten mins! See, now that's one bit of the marathon I don't miss!!!
07/04/2010 at 16:43

lashing it down when I did this run last week as well - only 10.86 miles (approximately) - will have a good look at Mudchute as I go past!

 Don't fancy practicing your support act at about 6pm tonight do you - I reckon that's when I'll be heading up eastferry road

07/04/2010 at 16:52

Sadly I'll be on a warm dry train about then !

Right I'm off, back later tonight - hopefully we'll have some more of our runners on then!!!
