Look out for the offical Photographers around the course especially at the end ..(they will be at / on the finish line) ..get their attention (if possible) then go for it...makes for a great picture for your photo album
Get there as early as you can, most runners are heading towards their pens at 9am, it will take at least 10 minutes to get to the start line so if you need the toilet just walk over you won't be last
stay out of the middle of the road when running as it can get quite busy there and you may have to get out of the way of quicker/slower runners..if you are nearer to the pavement often you can use that as an overtake
If you notice somebody in a costume and want to get on more pictures or the News (TV) stick by them..those guys can be quite fast without the costume, but often are going at an easier pace with it on .....plus you get more people noticing you and giving you a shout out..
As said previously most who start finish so don't worry about that but if the worst should happen the Tube is free for Runners get yourself to the finish area to meet family
You will have a great day,I will be doing the Bolton 10k on Sunday so will catch up on the highlights when I get home..AND looking forward to reading this thread
