Quick question. This will be my 4th London Marathon. On the previous 3 occasions got in via the ballot and started on Blackheath at the Blue start. This year I got in through my running club's ballot. When the mag arrived this week I was surprised to find I'm starting at the Red start (although quite looking forward to it as it will be good to experience the alternative 1st 3 miles for a change). Question is . . . at the Blue start there is always a bit of a bottleneck after the first couple of hundred yards as they seem to place barriers across the road which restrict the course width (very frustrating) . . . is the Red start any clearer? Are there more runners at the Red start (I believe this is where all the charity runners start from?). Just curious. Any info from peeps who have started at both Blue and Red much appreciated.
Cheers, All and good luck.
