London Marathon Race Day Update!

Two exciting updates for you! 

Coach to the Start

Firstly, confirmation that the coach to the start has been booked! 

We will be leaving Ealing Green at 7:00 promptly, so please be there by 6:45. Runners need to get to the start on time and race traffic builds up quickly so we won't be hanging around for anyone that isn't prompt, sorry.

The coach always fills up so sign up now!!

Seats will be allocated with runners having priority over cheer squad members (even though we love you too) and it's first come first served. If you are planning to go to Mile 23, DO NOT book a seat on the coach, as it is not going there and you will be in the wrong place!

The cost will be £5 to be collected on the day, and all money goes to the club charity as the club will be covering the cost of the coach hire. Bargain!

(Phone number is a must so we can harangue you if you are late!)

Showers & Celebrations!

A reminder to all runners at VLM that there are showers available once you've got to the pub after-party.

The pub is The Wellington directly behind Waterloo Station: and all friends and family are welcome. There will be food provided for the runners only but the pub do a great menu for the rest of us - plus we can dive in to any leftovers but only once the runners have had their fill.

You need to let us know you want to go on the list for showers when you get to the pub as it's on a first come, first served order (the list goes down fast so no massive wait normally). The gym that lets us use them will like a donation from you for their chosen charity as a thank you so you can bring that on the day or make a donation online here:

The gym location is just around the corner from the pub (about 400m for all of you wondering how far you'll have to walk. Out of the pub, right and right again - Soho Gym).

Bring all you need as nothing apart from the shower is provided 🙂

TAKE NOTE - The gym closes at 6:00pm sharp so the last shower is available at 5:30pm just in case people go for massages or off to see their charities after they finish.

For the those at the front of the pack and who have never been here before - you might beat us to the pub as occasionally we have trouble getting there before you as they close Embankment station, so in case that happens please just head off to the showers. Some of you who have done it before can show the others the ropes. It's in the gym round the corner (out of the pub, right and right again - Soho Gym) and just rotate no more than 5 people at a time so we don't swamp the place.
