Items should be marked with: name, race number & support group number. 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..
Hello group 7.

Gillymac and Sisterbadhabit do you want anything bringing?
Morning Team 7,
Wow got some speedy runners here. You guys will be flying past us at mile 17.
I hope taper madness isn't getting everyone!
I'm so excited lalalalala!!!
There will be plenty of hugs, waves, cheers and abuse to be got from the Super Sevens no fear - Gilly and I were the dream team last year too lol!
And Gilly, if they're all that speedy then it means we won't be too pished by the time they get to us I am already stockpiling pink fizz.................................................
I can't wait to meet you all on the day, I cant believe how quickly it has all come around it's ridiculous.
Hope you're all tapering properly too, my favourite bit a couple of years ago lol - that and the carb loading, I love pasta!
Right must get on T'internet to find some Number 7 balloons. SisterBadHabit was thinking of sending them straight to you, as you would no doubt get to Mile 17 before me, so can make sure we get plenty of Helium! If that is ok you can PM me your address.
mmmmm pink fizz
Great to see the thread is getting off to a good start .
And can I just take this chance to thank the supporters for volunteering. I know it's a cliche, but this really wouldn't happen without you. Thank you for giving up your time for what will definite be the RW Social event of the year.
Please can I ask if anyone (runners and supporters) can help with any of the following
STUFF WE NEEDIf anyone is able to help out with some of the things we need please cut and paste the following list and add your name and relevant details. Items can be brought straight to mudchute (if youre a supporter) or dropped at the Runners World stand at the VLM Expo.We are particularly low on supporter numbers at the moment so interesting to see which supporters maybe available to collect things from the expoJelly Babies, Banana's, Oranges, Jaffa Cakes etc we give out an enormous amount of these to all runners (can be left at RW Expo stand for collection by supporters) - we need lots and lots of theseJelly Babies, Jaffa Cakes etc (everyone, to be dropped off at RW expo stand or brought along to the support point)BalloonsBarley (100 dark blue, 100 light blue, 100 yellow)RW Banners - Barley to arrange collection from DTsHeliumBarley getting large cyclinderAsda Run to collect supplies100's small plastic bagsFoxy LadyPinkfelinaSister Bad habitSupport team signs (to be designed and made by each support team)Someone assertive x 2 to reserve support position from 8.00am 17th AprilSchmunkeeFirst aid kitFoxy LadySister Bad HabitLarge Balls of String x 2Miss KneesScissors x 2Sister Bad HabitSharp knife x 2Dave Wood 4 Swiss Army KnifePinkfelinaSister Bad HabitPaper platesMinniCamera/camera person, lots of space on cardBecks01Sister Bad HabitBinlinersPinkfelinaSister Bad Habit2 large rolls gaffer tapeDave Wood 4 x120 x 6ft long bamboo poles (for signs)Supporter to visit expo to collect items (inc banners) and bring to Mudchute (there was loads of stuff left for collection last year so the more people that can collect things the better)Thursday collection - BecksFriday collection - Saturday am collection - Running RodentSaturday pm collection - Running RodentSaturday closing collection - Barley
If anyone can help with any of the stuff we are short of, please pop along to the main Support Thread and post there.
Very quiet in here, hope that means it's because everyone is out on a run
Gilly, I'll PM you my address am out in Kent now rather than Surrey but trains are still good into London so v possible I may be there before you, I'll stake us a good spot on the fence! Will start the spreadsheet up on this end too
Morning Peeeps, how are we all this morning.
Cool, I was just thinking of getting the spready started! I'm sure you will probably still be there before me as the trains from MK are cr@p, especially at weekend when they always seem to have engineeering work on. I will try get an earlier train this year, so will aim to get there nice and early. I will try PMing some of our runners later on today to hopefully get them on to the thread. I'm sure there will be a few late joiners on main thread that we can nab as well
GillyMac and SBH - please let me know if you want to take more. I know I have one latecomer already looking for a home.
Also, I am planning on getting to mile 17 for around 8-ish. If you wanna claim a spot along the fence, please bear in mind that the groups will run consecutively from the water station next door
No, you've got to take the giant helium balloons on the train already filled .... it's all part of the fun ... they go puffy and floppy depending on the air pressure .... I though I had a puncture in my 3 last year but it puffed up again at Mudchute. Physics innit
SBH ... I hope you're going to live up to the name I found for you last year
