Could really use your help! My friend and I are intending to run the London Marathon. We've never run this one in particular before.
On the application form I stated in the area asking for predicted finishing time an estimate which would be a championship time - though I have not entered officially as a championship time runner as I have no written record proof of it.
My friend didn't state anything in that area. Our concern is whether we will still be allocated the same start point. I am aware that for different runners of different ability, a different start point is allocated, certainly if for example you entered with a proven championship time.
Does anyone know the chances that the organisers would put me with the championship runners (separate from my friend) to promote efficiency despite my time wasn't proven. This is my concern as we'd like to start together regardless. I wouldn't mind starting with the regular runners.
Thanks a lot everyone!
