Hi, sorry, not been following this thread! I can bring down additional Jelly babies and small plastic bags if that will help. I'm expecting to be at the Expo quite late on Saturday, probably after 3.
Hi - I've not looked at this thread for a while either!
I'm planning on going to Expo on Thursday so will leave some money for food, if that will be easiest to save carrying things about?
Thanks for all the effort going into the support - much appreciated!
Thanks Sloth, that'll be grand
I can bring 2 pairs scissors and do the Saturday PM collection from the expo
Sorry if this has been covered before, but what time do you need us down there?
Edit - what time do you need me to get to the Expo, and what time should I get to Mudchute?
If SC and Bear are doing the late Expo collection on Saturday then if you were there lunchtimeish that would probably work as there should be somebody there mid morning.
On the day I guess it's as early as possible as we need to hold our spot and get set up. I am hoping to be there for about 8 so soon after that would be great. I know a lot of people can't get there until about 10 due to trains on a Sunday.
Thanks TP, I'll aim to get to the Expo between 1 and 2pm then (give the stuff a bit of a chance to pile up again after the morning collection)
Can non-VLMers just wander in to the Expo or will I need to buy a ticket/ tell people that I'm with Runners World?
I will try to get to Mudchute for 8.30, I'm not much of a morning person so I'll be the one hiding tired eyes behind sunglasses and clutching a flask of coffee
I'd better check out my route to Mudchute too, in theory it should only take 90 mins from where I live but I know that the Jubilee and DLR often play up on Sundays so I'll plan a couple of alternative routes just in case.
Soupy, don't you be forgetting that tapir
I suspect the more the merrier when picking up from the Expo. Ten people with one bag of stuff each is a lot easier than 3 people with 10 bags between them!
streuth first run of taper done in hot weather!
5 miles - faster than marathon pace - 9.07,9.13,9.12,912,and 08:41 . Loved it but no way could I do that for 26/27 miles!! I chuffin wish!!
Sorry peeps but bumpy bumpy. With only 2 weeks to go I won;t tolerate this being on the second page
I should be at Mudchute by around 8-9 am depending on connections from the trains on the way in and am pretty efficient at keeping the area reserved - I kicked about 5 sets of people out last year even tho we actually have no legal 'right' over that bit of the course
Will prob be on my own as the Brother Bad Habit is now the ex-BBH but that will only aid my bolshiness lol.
And if anyone - runner or supporter - fancies dinner on the Friday night in London maybe then let me know? I shall probably pop along to the Expo in case extra hands are needed with collections and then I won't be in a rush to get home so pasta sounds good to me
I am sorry to inform my adoring public that Schmunkee will not be running VLM this year as I have sustained a running injury. Sounds impressive, huh? Until I tell you I was running for the train and have now got a Grade 2 calf tear so 8 weeks on the injury bench for me.
On the upside I wll be able to make it to Mudchute at some point in the late morning and hope to stay for a couple of hours. I do however have to warn you that I may have the infamous Barley with me
Oh Schmunks, that's crap that you can't run but we'll love to see you on 'our' side of the fence! I suppose we could even put up with Barley for that lol
The more the merrier for cherring and hurling of jelly babies!!!!!! xx
