God I'm so utterly shit I never even look on this.....
Just tell me what to bring, when to be there and who to squeeze SBH
LB - You need to squeeze ME! (Or at least push me in the general direction of the finish line)
Now THAT I can manage!

Got mine too. Just a quick question.... How do I know what coloured start i will be at?
You're race number is on the registration form.
If you read page 43 -45 of the magazine it'll tell you what numbers start where.
Liberty - I am starting from Blue and I am not fast at all.... I'm looking at about 5hr 30
Got my reg pack through the post yesterday, will have a read through tonight.
Really looking forward to this now, hopefully I can nail a sub 3:30 time but that's not important I'm just going to enjoy the day.
SBH I am going to be a little busy from Wednesday , can you let me know when teams will be allocated or have I missed it?
liberty - I think it's warm at most. :S
The same one as me?
I am on a Blue start but Im no elite. I was worried I had been put in the wrong bit. I am sure I put at least 5 h down.
I am not elite, or good-looking or a celebrity. I shall be starting at the back and enjoying my day
Hi all, I'm doing the London marathon for charadeeee in a few weeks and for the first time I have family coming to watch, this is rare as they work weekends but have booked this off ages ago. I want to make sure all goes well with them watching so they know exactly where to go etc.Ideally they'd like to see me pass 3 times, I've stated tower bridge at mile 12 as a good one, maybe the first as they are staying at a hotel near the London eye in the same location. Then obviously near the end too maybe corner where Buckingham palace is mile 26. But the 3rd spot not sure.So what im trying to do is give them step by step instructions so they dont get lost and can get to each point easily, they can if need be jump in a taxi between spots as there will be 5 of them. I'd prefer to avoid tubes etc as they will get confused I know.Can any London dwellers help with suggestions thanks, I'll probably be doing 11 minute miles and cross the start line about 10.15am.Its a special occasion with grandparents coming so just want to make it a great day for them.Thanks
Anyone mind if we move this event back until June, a little behind on training
Fuzzyvixx, Im none of those either so like you, I'm just going to enjoy the day. I still cant believe I am actually guna do the London Marathon eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek
I am behind in training too especially as we have tonnes of snow now too.
LB is winding you all up, and quite sucessfully by the look of it
Blue start is ballot and club places. The front of the pack will be fast but the back of the pack will include some runners aiming for 5-6 hours.
Red start is Charity places so tends to be slower and has all the people in costumes and those who intend to walk it all.
Green start is celebrities and good for age. Elite start at the front of the green start but have their own assembly point I believe (with flushing toilets - I know because I have used them!).
As for being divided into teams, I believe that SBH is intending to allocate teams shortly. Please can everyone set up their profile to accept messages as your team leaders will need to be able to get in contact with you privately, unless you don't mind the whole world knowing your personal details.
Ah, thats why then as I got my place through my running club. I am running with a Giant Teddy on by back though so will be run/walking it all.
