This weekend sees the 30th running of the London Marathon, now sponsored by Virgin. This year we have eight club members taking part, although it does seem that (almost) all of them are somewhat underprepared for beating the streets of London for 26.2 miles on Sunday! Or at least that's what they all keep saying!
Whatever their individual issues, it is our job to wish them all well as they prepare to line up in Blackheath for the 9.45 kick off. Each year the London marathon develop a new "tracking" system for the runners so that you can see how they are getting on as they go over each timing mat every 5K. Here are the instructions for this years effort supported by Adidas.
