Location of Support areaWith 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.

Any final instructions will be posted Wednesday 13th April. So ensure you check back here and on the support group threads.Good luck everyone..
Wahey!! Group 8 - rhymes with Great - a coincidence? I don't think so!!!!
Come on Grope 8 runners, let us know your needs!
Sweetie and Foxy await your commands
<gets out big bit of paper and writes long list>
I shall summarise .... hugs and fizzy stuff
The Great 8 should look good on a sign, get that Tippytoze onto sign design ... he did a sterling job for me last year.
Tippytoes has already offered - lovely man that he is!!
There will be hugs.
There will be fizzy stuff.
There will be mess!!!!!
How is TT getting the sign there? He could leave it at mine with a little planning.......and I could bring it up on the train.
Big wave to all!
The Great 8, Hello!

er, please can I have a pb?
Sure, no problem Minni!
<enters Minni's request on master spreadsheet> - or should that be mistress spreadsheet?
Ah, of course. Good thinking.
So lets start with the easy ones first
Forum name : JohnFolName : I think FoxyL knows this oneRace number :26,800Estimated time to mile 17 : 2hrs 50minsWhat you'll be wearing : Purple Patch t-shirt, probably with hand drawn JohnFol on the frontAny special needs : motorised skateboard and Nell McAndrew to run ahead of me.
Please don't encourage him Sweetest .
Indeed I will be hand carrying his cliff shot blocks and if he's really lucky I won't have eaten them all before he gets there!! I may have snaffled the odd one on our training runs.
Somehow I thing race number 26,200 would have been a better one- do you have to run an extra .4 of a mile because of yours?
And as your trainer, I would prefer you to be turning up around the 2hour 58.5min mark!!!
Hello everyone - looking forward to meeting the lovely supporters!
Ooooh I thought Lady Pineapple would be asking for fresh pineapple and I'd quite like a slice too.
I did my last hill session tonight ... thank gawd that's done ....
I think I might have a glass of SB to ease the worries .... not that I have any but preventative medicine is all the thing isn't it.
