I’m not entered for the Marathon, do you have any guaranteed places?
No, you need to sort out your own place before you book with me. Entries for 2017 are now closed but several charities are still looking for sponsorship volunteers for their Gold Bond places. Check them out on the London Marathon website.
I’ve got my place in the Marathon and I’ve already booked my hotel but your Support Pack looks like just what I need – have I left it too late? Do I need to book accommodation with you to take advantage of your facilities?
No problem! Everyone is welcome. Just book the support pack without accommodation. Let me know where you are staying and we will fix up suitable pick-up points for you.
I want to bring my family so they can cheer me on but they don’t know their way around in London, will they be OK while I’m running?
Yes, they will travel with you to the Start. Then we have an escorted Spectator Service, which will take them from the Start to the Finish by coach, so they can meet you at the Finish and travel on the shuttle with you back to Jurys Inn.
I’m travelling from Scotland, what’s the best way to get to London?
Last year several runners flew by Easyjet and Ryanair to Luton or Stansted to be met by one of my coaches, which took them direct to the Marathon Exhibition for Registration. Why not do the same this year? N. Ireland & Isle of Man included!
My friend and I are running together and want to share a room but he lives in Cornwall and is travelling by car. I live in Manchester and want to come by coach.
No problem! Just let me know the details and I will make sure you meet up, staying at the same hotel.
I don’t want to book just yet – I’m not sure how well my training is going – is that all right?
It’s up to you but bear in mind that last year all my rooms were booked by mid-March and I unfortunately had to turn people away. Even with more rooms this year the same thing is likely to happen.
Don’t leave it too late!
