London Marathon 2012: Runners and Supporters



  • GladragsGladrags ✭✭✭

    was on runners list but have no group?

    should i choose one myself (have no strong preferences) or will someone tell me where i should go? would really appreciate someone handing me some jelly babies at mile 17!!!

  • you are welcome in group 1....image
  • Oh Gladrags I'm so sorry!!! I worked off the last list in the thread so it may be that there's been some omissions in copying and pasting image

    Like Rob says, rock over to the Wicked One's, we'll welcome you with open arms!!

    Another looking for a welcome with arms, open rather than loaded.

    I haven't posted my name before because I'm a bit slow on the uptake, and irregularly in and out of here.  Anyway, I'm running, and would love someone to hand me gels and throw water over me at mile 17!  Any takers?

  • If it is OK with SBH and TP then you are welcome to join Group 3
  • RatzerRatzer ✭✭✭
    Cheers, SuperCaz!  I'll find your thread and figure out what I have to do.  Contacted SBH and she was happy with anyone who could picking me up, so I'll see you in there.  Hopefully my needs will be light and simple...
  • Anyone want to welcome another runner? Family can't make the race so I'll be lonely image

  • i'm always lonely

    i'm bleeding

  • Sister Bad Habit has told me to linger on this thread until someone adopts me!..... *waits patiently*

  • bloody long wait LOL
  • Be patient James.  One of us will have you, but as I've already adopted an additional one I am willing to give the other groups a chance first.
  • Come over to Group 4, James image
  • YEY! See you there!

    One thing that I asked on my group thread was: Is there anything that the runners can bring the supporters for your trouble (e.g. jaffa cakes/beer etc).... to be able to keep you occuped whilst you're waiting for us?

    I'm planning to write my number on my arm so I don't forget image

  • Oh Emmy, that's really sweet of you! image

    Nothing special for me (I'll probably bring a flask of coffee or check out where the nearest Starbucks/Costa/etc is) but thank you so much for asking x

  • Emmy, there is a general request for money which we can use to buy some of the supplies for the runners so that we don't ahve to drag 20 tonnes of jelly babies from all across the country.

    I will be making the supporters a cake.  It's tradition.  Cake goes everywhere with me.

  • We'll be popping in as usual.- drinking far too much and cheering excitedly.  There's a supermarket very close to the support point  so the supporters usually fair pretty well.

     (I've not read back, it is in the same place as usual etc isn't it?)

  • Yes, it's the same spot.  This year I have remembered that the supermarket doesn't open until 11.  Every year we are queuing up outside at 10 as we always forget.
  • Dear fellow RW forumites - spectators and runners

    This is Mick speaking

    Some of you will no doubt know a lot about us , some may not

    So, to say -

    We as already stated hope to get to Mudchute to have a day of fun

    But my day will depend on Philip’s behaviour, as he is most content on the move, and not so much us being static

    He sadly does not give me much chance to socialise with anyone, he really craves my attention , Philip can be extremely demanding, he can do very little for himself, and he cannot talk he shreaks

    So, please if I appear to be ignoring anyone or not interested, I’m sorry, I’ll do my utmost best to be respectful and polite and sociable to you all , but my life is easier when he’s happy

    I myself would so much rather be running, and its only due to London marathon bosses that we are not

    So, my apologies are given up front,

    I do hope you all have a fabulas day

    If there’s is anything you’d like to know from me, then please feel free to ask, online here or on the day, and I’ll do my best to accommodate you

    Best wishes always


  • Nearest coffee is at Asda 5 mins walk away, or you can hop on the DLR for 2 stops to Greenwich and there's a Costa and a Starbucks (and an M&S food if anyone has a sudden Percy Pig craving).
  • Fingers crossed for a good day for both of you, Mick image
  • Could I request a group please? I had a group the year that it hailstoned and I remember it cheered me up no end to have someone (Aitch!) give me a hug and some Jelly Babies image
  • Feel free to join group 2 Nykie, we love a frog image

    The lovely supporters will attend to you whilst I am stuck in Fawlty Towers, more chance of decent service and edible food at Mudchte.

    Mick, to have you and Philip there woul be the biggest bonus, no apologies necessary.
  • I'd like to avail myself once more of the great support from the lovely people at mile 17.  Can I be put in TP's group please?
  • Just join Group 2 RE, we're waiting for you with open wings image
  • E mmyE mmy ✭✭✭
    @Mick - It would be a pleasure just to see you and Phill on the course image
  • I can't believe I only just saw this thread! What a wonderfully sweet idea.

    I'm a runner - not asking for any supplies or anything, just a motivational lifting cheer as mile 17 is pretty far down the course image Can I please be added to the list?

  • Fizzipop, you are welcome to join Group 3.  Can you post your details on the Group 3 thread so that we know who we are looking for?
  • Absolutely, thanks SuperCaz! I'm off to track it down now image
