To be sure we have what you need or for more obscure requests please leave items at the Runners World stand at the registration Expo. Supporters will be collecting them Thursday, Friday & Saturday. Items should be market with: name, race number & support group number.

Location of Support area

With approx 40,000 runners it is almost impossible to pick out individuals as they pass, therefore its important you know where to spot us.

The support area is on the right hand side of the road at the pelican crossing by mudchute DLR station. There is a water station immediately after the 17 mile point, pelican crossing is immediately after the water station. I will post a close of google map/google earth image of the area with exact location shortly.

Supporters will be standing in sequential group order along the course. The area will be festooned with blue and yellow balloons so should be easy to spot, when you get to us, look out for the support group numbers and go over to your respective group.

Please use this thread to ask any questions and look out for further information which will be posted up until the race. Any final instructions will be posted Sunday 15th April.

Good luck everyone..



  • Hi Gang image

    I’ll post asked for details later. Just popping in to say Hi and thank the organisers for doing this yet again. image
  • Hi everyone image

    I'm most excited the groups are allocated - 5 weeks today and we'll be there - woo hoo!!

    Can't wait to get to meet everyone image

  • Howdy folks - and hello Group 2 image .

    Just to let you know I can do pickups from the Expo any day if needed - it's within striking distance of where I work.

    Hope the training's going well. Good weather has been ordered for the day.
  • Excellent RR, both SP and I are from outwith Ingerlund so only arrive on Friday.

    Now, I have been a Grope 3 supporter (the magic numbers) and a Grope 5 but now we need a tag for the Terrible Twos .... oh I seem to have it image

    Welcome aboard the Terrible Twos. Tantrums and tiaras mandatory. Gin optional. Fun guaranteed. Bring it on ..
  • The gin is optional? No one told me that!

    TP - am I right in thinking you're coming from north of the Border?
  • *pops in to wave to the neighbours* hello peeps!!!!! RR I work in the city so can give you a hand with grope 2's pick ups as well as my wicked ones if needed image the countdown has begun! X
  • Hi all, I've decided to defer until next year now so sadly won't be enjoying the support at mile 17. Sorry i forgot to update and take my name of the list. Good luck to all runners and have fun all supporters!
  • You are correct in your assumption RR, I am of the kilt wearing fraternity. SP isnof the leprachaun species ... mixed bag us terrible twos.

    Nice work SBH.

    Sorry to lose one already but I shall be adopting as we go as ever.
  • Morning Number Twos image.

    <snigger> well it seemed quite appropriate for runners ...

    No, I think we'll stick with the Terrible Twos and throw huge tantrums over who gets the biggest fizz allocation or most jelly babies.
  • Pops in to say hello to the neighbours image' />
  • Morning!

    I am practising my foot-stamping, breath-holding and dry-eyed crying in order to set the standard for Terrible Two behaviour -I just need to cast my mind back to when LD and AS were toddlers to have some good role models!!
  • Some of us have never grown out of it, only this morning I had to throw myself down on the kitchen floor and drum my heels when I found the hot cross bun was a little stale.

    Welcome aboard ST. I dont believe either of your two would have done such a thing ...
  • TP - thought so. Ex-pat Scot here - I think as a matter of principle we should offer deep-fried shotbloks and Irn Bru.
  • And an ex-pat here to, so there will be a little row if us!
  • *elbows a bit more space* budge up terrible twos, make way for Team Three image' />
  • pops in from group 1.......hello.....pops out again......image' />image' />
  • Oooh how exciting! Hello twos. Looking forward to meeting everyone in LESS THAN FIVE WEEKS. I will be thinking of my green room requirements in the mean time (apart from the gin which I assume is for the runners too ...?)
  • Well, this runner (term used in its loosest possible sense) is having champagne, so you can have all the gin you fancy image' />

  • Ooohh - makes my Stronbow look very pedestrian - an extremely apt description for this old Bear image' />.
  • I can confirm that a full complementary bar service will be avilable for all the Terrible Twos. However, anyone holding their breath or sreaming until they're sick might have to sit on the naught step first.
  • All of a sudden it all seems very real and not far away, can't wait! Thanks for all the organising, looking forward to meeting everyone.

  • *ahem* scuse me TP, don't forget the bar service should be operating for the Wicked Ones as well image' /> or I won't lug it all into London lol!!!!!
  • Sssh SBH or they'll all be wanting the trolley service image' />
  • i'll have a GG and lemonade please....large
  • i'll spend the day on the naughty step then image' />
  • All the other groups are on the 'hot threads' front page - come on number twos!

    So tell us how your training's going, runners - any hideous LSR stories? Awful injuries? Or are you all bounding along like gazelles, for 90 miles a week image' /> ?
  • 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


  • Hi Mick - hope you manage to get there and have a great day.
  • Hello!

    Thanks to all those who are doing the organising and in advance for the lovely supporters....I hope you don't mind waiting for the slowest plodder in the history of snail like people.  

    I'm loving being in the terrible twos as well. Hahaha.

     Going to get my thinking cap on special needs wise...the thought of alcohol is tempting!  image' />

     Mick  really hope you manage to get Mudchute and you and Phil have a great day.  You're brilliant. xx

  • Mick, it would be great to see you at Mudchute but you're right, Phil comes first.

    I love all this competition for who's going to be the slowest runner in our group! I can tell you all for a fact that Loon and I will definitely be the slowest, as we will end up walking pretty much all of it (brisk pace, mind you!). Loon has hip bursitis and I have only recently returned to exercise after a year of serious illness and fairly unpleasant treatment, so we will be taking our sweet time going round, soaking up the atmosphere and enjoying the day. So, if any other runners in the Terrible Twos seriously, genuinely think they will be doing the race at fast walk pace, with a bit of plodding as and when, you are very welcome to join our little party image' /> I will be dressed as Alice in Wonderland, Loon has a magnificent Mad Hatter costume and the third friend who will be with us will be the Cheshire Cat, so feel free to dress as Tweedledum or Tweedledee, or the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts etc.

    It's going to be A Grand Day Out image' />
