Hi Mark

 I'm coming to run on Sunday, but have recently had a cold which has knocked my training somewhat, so I will be going slower than I had intended (which wasn't very fast in the first place!). Is there a cut off period for finishers? I'm hoping I will finish in just over an hour, but just wanted to know how long the marshalls were intending to be out on the course



Is anyone using the training schedule in the Marathon news magazine?

Just wondering if anyone is using the training schedule in the marathon news magazine. I am quite enjoying it's format, and training to times rather than distances (which is new to me)

 I am training to the improvement plan (the middle one!), and wondered about the threshold runs and how long you should leave between the timed threshold pieces. Should it be a minute, or longer?

 Think I have to tackle my first threshold session next week, so it would be good to know before then


Online Entry - Open already?

That's great news screamapillar!
I've also got confirmation from them today too, so my crossing fingers (and repeated e mailing to any realbuzz e mail address I could find!) seems to have paid off.

JPenno, have you tried the emailing tactic yet?

I have to say, my hotmail hasn't had this much attention from me before. All because of one confirmation e mail.... ah well.

Roll on October! (hoping the finger crossing tactic will work again!)

Thank you message? I haven't got one of those either! I think I might be onto a losing streak here!

Thanks screamapillar. It's good to have a named email to send stuff to. I was sending to london@realbuzz.com which I'm guessing won't be checked as frequently.
Off to try again!

I've just managed to get through to someone at FLM, and it seems that though I've received a World Pay e mail confirmation, FLM themselves have no trace of my application.

They've told me to e mail real buzz, which I've done and am waiting to hear back from them. Anyone know how quickly they get back to people?

Running Clubs in SW London

I was wondering if anyone who lived in South West London could recommended a running club that caters for all levels of people.
I've just run my first marathon (very slowly!) and would like to work on fitness, speed and generally get out and meet new people.

I live in Putney so anywhere near by would be preferable.

Hope you can help!

Delia and I share ours as we did the whole thing together

Morning Delia. How are you feeling this morning? I imagine that how I feel today is a bit like what it feels like to be hit by a car!

Thank you to everyone who waited for us and provided us with much needed water. I think knowing you were going to be there at Mile 17 helped Delia and I carry on through that tricky 13-20 mile stretch.

Well done everyone as well.
