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.

Thinking about food, something I love but have been denying myself in the marathon build up (because I can eat a whole box in one sitting) is Mr Kipling French Fancies. I'll bring some along to the expo on the proviso that a pink or yellow one is saved for me!
