I'm also considering travelling down from the midlands on the morning - it's been suggested we park at Luton Parkway and get the train from there. If anyone thinks that's a rubbish idea, please tell me! Think I'll also allow a rdiculous amount of slack in the travel timings, this is one day I really don't want to be late.
At least if there's a shed load of non-runners, I can be fairly sure I won't be last!
Good idea .
First Capital Connect - West Hampsted - Jubilee line to Stratford.
Personally i would go to Stanmore, park in station car park £4 then stanmore - stratford( one train) £8.50 return.
quite agree about people that havent trained, surely this is the perfect opportunity to get fit and look at running as a hobby
Martin - I did ask the question on the facebook page about taking liquids in, especially if it's warm and it's supposed to take us 2 hours to access the park as we'll all still be drinking 2 hours before the race... have had no response yet...
Thought it was a bit irresponsible of the organisers to advise everyone to ensure they are hydrated adequately, then say we can't take water in and it'll only be available at the start, on the course and at the finish... especially given the number of people who seem to be running it who are not necessarily regular runners and may not be as aware of the importance of pre race hydration etc...
Also have found the route online, evethough it hasn't been published yet... looks a bit wiggly, but it does go all round the park and past all the major venues
Having completed the Brighton Half Marathon on Sunday can now concentrate on this one and am really looking forward to it - see you all there !!
There's a pdf version of the route from here:

..., I was on the fb group page for this the other day and was quite upset to see a large number of non runners joking about how hey haven't trained and don't plan to, they entered the ballot for "the lulz" was how one put it, shame that so many people who would have loved to have done this, true runners, were declined and people like that got in, ...
What a load of snobby crap.
This is a well-publicised mass-participation event, it's bound to attract people who are not "true runners" - and why not? Are they not entitled to have a look at the stadium they've contributed to?
My race pack arrived today too, but my Medium T-Shirt is huuuuuuge!
Going to e-mail them to ask if there is any chance of a change, but I'm not hopeful!
It's one of these in red touie2
I've either been sent the mens fit one in error, or they are just sending mens fit to everyone which doesn't help the sizing issue!
