London Marathon 17th April 2011
Every year members of the forum arrange a support area at Mudchute, Docklands which is at about 17 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.
Anyone is welcome to come along, help us support the race and join in the fun, its just one big party and a fantastic day out.
To begin with we need two lists:
Supporters (those forum members who can come along and support).
Runners (forum names of runners; who would like that extra big cheer to get them through the last miles).
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, race number etc.
[edit to include the pub] all are encouraged to meet up at 'the pub' Chandos, Trafalgar Square for many beers and stories of achievement after the race.
