London Marathon - Runners & Supporters 2009


London Marathon 26th April 2009

Every year members of the forum arrange a support area at Mudchute, Docklands which is at about 17/18 miles.

Usually we have about 50+ supporters and well over 200 runners, the idea is runners are split between pairs of supporters that can give you that extra special cheer and provide any special needs such as gels, even cans of beer have been requested in the past. After the race we all meet up at a pub near Trafalgar Square.

To begin with we need two lists:

Supporters (those forum members who can come along and support)

Runners (forum names of runners who we should look out for)


A month or so before the race we will split the supporters into teams, arrange all the logistics of what we need to bring etc and allocate the runners between the support teams.  Once this is done the support teams will contact all their runners to find out specific race day information e.g. predicted time, special needs requirements, race number etc.


Ive also dug out the following suggestions which were made after last year

I think we've more or less agreed to move to the other side of the road next year.

Relocate to the other side of the road Have the support area coned/taped off the night before Get there earlier to reserve the whole railingBe more assertive with any ingressorsBetter organisation for inflating balloons (we only used about 1/4 of what we had)T-shirts and caps to help us stand outlassoo's to catch runners that miss us

    Mouse, you greedy thing, you can't have *everyone*! image

  • Mouse thanks I was just going to add myself and see that your super organisation skills have already beaten me to it. x
  • Oranges were really popular with a lot of the runners last year, though they are obviously really heavy to lug in!

    Also, if I recall correctly the reason not all the balloons were used was because we needed more string. I think one of the string bearers dropped out at short notice.  There was enough hot air around to blow the balloons up.

  • Oh fab, thanks for organising this again Barley

  • we are open to bribes Mouse  image
  • I'm doing it, just the RW pacing again though - so if Barley throws an empty beer can at my head again like last year that will be sufficient.
