All runners, marshals and spectators for this years London Marathon.
The London Marathon is on Sunday, it seems to have come round really quickly. I hope all of you running have had a successful training year and are fighting fit for Sunday. The weather is not looking too bad, certainly not as hot as we have had this weekend, which will be good for you all.
The WRR coach leaves the Woodford Way open are car park promptly at 6 am, so please be there by 5.45 am to be checked on. We do not have the time to wait for late comers. Remember the important people on the day are the runners and we do not want to cause them any stress.
Marshals – You will be given a marshal bag on arrival Sunday morning, this will include several items – marshal instructions, lanyard, hat, badge, jacket and details on how to get back to the coach for the return journey. Please bring suitable clothing for the day, you will be standing for several hours, so comfortable shoes are a must.
Please bring food and drinks for the day, you will not have time to go off and have your lunch somewhere else as you need to be in place the whole time, apart from loo breaks. It sounds a long time, but it will fly by.
Runners – Our coach has a START PASS and therefore will be able to drop you off as close to the start as possible. You will be given instructions for the return journey along with contact details should you have a problem.
Spectators – Enjoy the day, it is one of the best events held in our wonderful City. You will also be given instructions for the return journey and contact details.
I hope you are all looking forward to the day.
