Thanks to Philpub and Rodent especially. Combination of a huge, unique flag and your advice meant that I saw/and was seen at:
Creek Road (between 11km and 7m marks)
Westferry (just before 15m right outside the station)
Westferry (at about 20.5).
Also managed to get to embankment and see (but not be seen) just shy of the 25m marker.
Really useful. If anyones looking to do this in future I can recommend a 5m extendible flag pole (about a fiver from a camping shop) and a 3ft by 5 ft flag. Sits way above most other signs and doesn't annoy anyone in the crowd by blocking their view.
The O/H is running the marathon on Sunday and I'm looking to make the most of the day... see as much of the course as possible, be at places that I can be seen.... etc. etc...
I've never been down to see the race before and thought you guys might be able to help with some prime locations so that I can get the most our of it?
Plan is to drive down to Ruislip on Saturday and get the tube to London Bridge where we're staying then head to Excel to register.
On the Sunday the plan is: To the start in Greenwich Park, Walk up to Cutty Sark area, Through the Pedestrian tunnel and go to Mudchute area. Then try and get a boris bike and go to various points along the route back to Buck Pal.
Any comments on whether this is a good / bad idea? Will there be Boris' available or are they likely to all be taken?
