Newspaper supplements

Does anyone know when all the runners times are to be published? I read last weekend that the Daily Mail was doing a special supplement today (27th) Bought today's edition, but no supplement.

  • I heard it was the Evening Standard, not the Daily Mail that's doing a supplement today. I was going to buy it as a momento of my first marathon.

    You can look all the times up on the London Marathon website though:
    http://2006race.london-marathon.co.uk/2006/

    It gives you your position overall, in your gender, and age groups, but doesn't say out of how many people, so I was hoping to find that out in the paper.
  • I have contacted the Daily Mail. On page 81 of todays edition it says there is a 24 page colour FLM special supplement which you can send off for. The cost is £1.50 and will be sent out within 28 days.
  • It IS in the ES today!
  • Anyone know if the daily mail supplement is the same as the ES one? I've got an order in with ES so trying to decide if it is worth sending off for the mail's one? I think one owns the other thought so I expect they are identical?
  • I just bought the ES one - 32 pages just listing all the runners and their times and a couple of articles.

    Has anyone read the article by Justin Cartwright in it? Why does he have to sound so miserable and put such a downer on a fantastic and memorable day?

    I think the London Marathon is an amazing event in so many ways, from the effort and enthusiasm of the supporters to the fundraising and commitment of the runners. We shouldn't have to put up with some tabloid couch-potato cynic raining on our soggy parade! ;¬)
  • I will have to pay for the supplement as we don't get "The Evening Standard" here in Wales :-(
  • Darrell, I picked up a form at the Expo from evening standard to order copies, but basically it just said please send me x number of copies of the Evening Standard published on Thursday 27th April, and they charge £2 each including P&P. I reckon then if you contacted them by email or phone and asked for this then they would post them out to you.
    Hope this helps

  • I sooooo want to make a witty comment about newspaper supplements not being needed if you have a healthy, balanced diet...........
  • Thanks FB.
  • Fleabag - a couple of years ago I got the ES and DM supplememnts. They had different covers but were essentially the same.
  • It's not very interesting other than having your name in print (if you finished, Ms Goody...)
  • Does anyone have the phone number and address to send for a copy of the supplement, and who to make cheque payable to.
  • Didn't manage to get a copy of the Mail yesterday as Tesco had sold out. Can I still send off for the supplement? Does any one who got the paper have any details?
  • Here's the Daily Mail article:

    The Daily Mail is a media partner of the Flora London Marathon and we have produced a fantastic 32-page, full-colour supplement recording every runner's personal time and place in the race. It is the ultimate memento of the day. For your copy, send your name and address with a cheque (made payable to 'Daily Mail') for £1.50 for each copy ordered to:

    Marathon Supplement,
    P.O. Box 2006,
    Aldershot,
    Hants,
    GU11 9WB.

    All orders will be sent out within 28 days of receipt of applications.

  • Thanks Octopus

  • Does anyone know if there's details anywhere of folks that started but didn't finish?

    (Surely some of them would like there splits for the bits they did do... and it would be interesting to see numbers)

    You are welcome.
  • I've got some spares of the Evening Standard supplement is anyone wants one.
  • Badger Family:

    I live in the States, and so I wasn't able to buy the Evening Standard when the results supplement came out last Thursday.

    In addition, although I paid to have a few supplements mailed to me at the ES booth at the Expo, in the past when I did that I never got them, and I'm afraid that might happen again this year.

    As a result, I really would appreciate it if you could mail me a supplement or two. I would be happy to pay for the cost, including postage to the US, of those supplements.

    Many thanks for any help you can provide.
