London Marathon Runners and Supporters Thread

Welcome to the annual thread for runners and supporters at the London Marathon.

For those who are new to this, we have a bunch of volunteers who provide a custom support station at Mudchute, around mile 16-17.  We will have an abundance of jelly babies, jaffa cakes, cheers and hugs waiting for any runners who need it, or runners can leave their own custom supplies that we can have ready for them.

Obviously to make such an event a success we need your help.  So if you are running London, maybe it is your first time, and you want to see friendly faces, or you are an experienced runner who just want a wave, then please sign up on the RUNNERS list below.

We also need volunteers to run the support station.  Those of you who benefited from our support last year, maybe you feel that you would like to give something back.  Or maybe you are a friend or family of a runner and want to watch from somewhere where it will be easy for your runner to find you.  If you feel that you are able to help out them please sign up on the SUPPORTERS list below.  No prior experience is necessary.

     My first VLM and my first marathon so support will be VERY welcome image

  • Bear will be supporting - but cut and paste function has vanished, along with link function and spel chek.

  • I am a first time runner so will appreciate any/all help! I'll try and wrangle some friends / colleagues to help on the stand!  My work are a partner of macmillan and are trying to raise £5000 on my behalf, so im sure I could get a few of the macmillan reps at my place to pitch in with man power or supplies.

  • Ha. No need to add me to the list this year (just causing anxiety for my group as we totally fail to see each other for the third year in a row), but if you do happen to see me run past, perhaps you could just yell WE'RE OVER HERE YOU IDIOT! so I know for next time. Race number 199.

  • image I shall be there Thinking this year can just get a big straw and some cava if that's ok and heckle people? Know that's not the done thing through. image

  • Oh yes please add me to the runners list. It's my first marathon and I will be oh so slow. I've also shared the thread with friends and family and asked them to volunteer. Jaffa Cakes, great idea!

  • We don't care how slow you are.  We wait at least until the sweeper vehicle comes through and if we know that any of our runners are behind the sweeper then we will wait for them too.

    Cake, I should be able to drink again by then, so save me a straw image

  • You provide support at mile 16? What a shame as you won't be seeing Jason Scotland-Williams then.

  • My first ever marathon. Would greatly appreciate some support. I've added myself on:

  • This will be my first LM- the worst thing for me re running a marathon is not seeing people I know/friendly faces- please add me to the list.

     

    Thanks

  • Quite a team of supporters and runners image

     

  • Hi all,



    Apologies for the off topic post but...



    I was supposed to be running London but missed the champs runner deadline cut off, whoops!



    I have booked a two bed apartment at Fraser Place.



    http://london-canarywharf.frasershospitality.com/en



    I have stayed here for the last 3 years when running the marathon. The location and standards are great. I have stayed there with my partner, two kids aged 10 and 12 and my parents.



    I have paid ??313.00 which is non-refundable so am looking to recoup some of the cost. I am ideally looking for about ??200



    Any offers considered as they will allow me to transfer the name and other details.



    Thanks,

    Paul

    please PM me if you are interested and happy training
  • I am running for Get Kids Going so put me down as a runnerimage

  • Here's how it works.  Supporters will be divided up into groups about a month before the event.  Each group will be allocated a number of runners and a thread will be started for each group.

    When the group threads have been set up, each runner will need to get in contact with their support group and give them enough personal details that we can identify them in the crowd.  Please can everyone have their RW message facility available so that the group leaders can contact the runners so that personal information isn't posted publicly.
