And the reward for best response goes to a PIRATE!! Yes the London Marathon is open to all!! Some of my friends are Pirates (Crashy, Squishy, Fat Budha) they wouldn't dream of criticising anyone who has the guts to go out do this event. There are plenty of races out there for the 'purist' runner, however no walkers stopped my son doing 2hr 50mins at this years London Marathon.
All hail to the wonderful Pirates..
I'm going to tell Tony Blair about you lot - I'm sure you'll be able to sort the middle east out too..
Andy Stevens 3 - I agree with you regarding getting around, anyone can walk it. Anyone who can't consistently move their body at such a slow pace whilst being provided water and energy supplements (excluding injury/disability etc) should sort themselves out.
However, the human body is designed to run a lot more than you appear to think. Although running on the terrain of completely flat tarmac is something that most likely wasn't in the early models!

Google suggests that the Bob Mortimer Round is good old-fashioned humour. I think KK was seeing if we were all paying attention...
William, i'd walk 18 - 20miles if i were u for ur longest training walk, good luck to you all whether u are walking or running, i did vlm last year, had a knee injury
so my theory was run a mile walk for a minute, and it worked for me, on my minute walking i had a drink, a jelly baby or even took a photo hahaha, I managed it in 5hours 49 and was well chuffed with that and although i was in agony at mile 18 with my knee and took painkillers, i was determined to finish I ran the last 2miles without stopping and decided to knuckle down and run my legs off as a result my last 2miles i ran in 20mins lol not bad for my run walk theory!!!
