*Special Needs - All reasonable requests will be catered for i.e. SIS/High 5 gel, banana, Jelly Babies, boiled sweets etc, even lager & Guiness have been requested before. 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 marked 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. 

Good luck everyone..

    BBH's Support


  • At this rate group three supporters will be offering a one to one service

  • WombleWomble ✭✭✭
    Aha, so this is where you all are! I can help with jaffa cakes and alcohol but not jelly babies.
  • Who needs jelly babies, come to that who needs Jaffa Cakes, now alcohol..image

  • SuperCazSuperCaz ✭✭✭

    Hi guys!  Just bouncing you back to the first page again.

  • WombleWomble ✭✭✭
    So, dear runners of Group 3 - apart from Mr Frog and georginagem - could you provide us with your estimated time of arrival at Mile 17, please? That way I can make sure that BBH is still upright and capable of handing out jellyjaffaalcohol.

  • Yes please runners - we need something to do

  • WombleWomble ✭✭✭
    I think the supporters on this group are going to have a very tiring day. "Tired and (ahem) emotional"image
  • To add to the info above...

    Runner number: 36373
    I'll be in a fluorescent yellow Headway vest with my name on!

    Thinking about food, something I love but have been denying myself in the marathon build up (because I can eat a whole box in one sitting) is Mr Kipling French Fancies. I'll bring some along to the expo on the proviso that a pink or yellow one is saved for me!

  • Hi Guys

    SuperCaz sent me along...


    Thanks for any support you can give me. I will be at mile 17 as soon as I can be... hoping for about 2:30 to mile 17.

    Will be in Pirate top

    Jelly Babies would be great.


    Thanks again


  • Jelly babies (or bears) it is and will try and restrain myself from the fondant fancies.

  • SuperCazSuperCaz ✭✭✭

    Got a new runner for you by the name of Hellen.  Take good care of her for meimage

  • Hello, sorry to be a late comer. I am a bit disorganised

    I will be wearing a Macmillan green vest as will several others but my distinguishing feature will be my sky blue calf guards which have 'team 9bar' in them

    I keep changing my mind about time. If I am being sensible then I will be at mile 17 in around 2.15. It might be earlier if I decided to race it but I must not race, I must not race as I have my A race 2 weeks later.

    Jaffa cakes and maybe a few red or black jelly babies would be great

  • Just read the first page and see that you also need my real name - helen james

    And race number 29335
