Well ladies and gents, boys and girls, it is time to start a north/south rivalry again. As always there are number of us who have got lucky in the ballot or wish to gain a charity place. This is the thread to document your training and support each other.

Nearer the time I will also look to arrange a pre/post race meet if people are interested. Naturally we will also be aiming to collectively beat the northerners :d

If you have a place in VLM please add your name below.

Running for MSRC (Multiple Sclerosis Resource Centre)

I was diagnosed with it some years ago, ironically a year after I last ran a marathon in 1993!


Really looking forward to getting giving some support!

I'm a Londoner btw living a few miles away from the start

I didn't get in the ballot, so am running for the Royal Air Force Association (RAFA), although I'm not ex-services I know the people there well and the great work that they do, so I'm delighted to be able to raise money for them.

Not sure about the North/South thing though, I'm a Midlander, not a Northerner or a Southerner - I might need to remain neutral :lol:

I'm not so bothered about the north south thing either. A shoulder to cry on over the next few months is more of a priority.

Support is the first priority :)

The North South rivalry is not about where you come from but where you are running :). London V Edinburgh

*Edit: Post run meal is most important, followed by support :d*

They'll be plenty of those. This forum was very influential in my training and on race day last year.

Me too. Feeling quite positive about getting a place as there are 5 places and I'm the only one in the hat up to now :d

Woo-hoo! I'm in! Never got in on the ballot but just got a place with Clic Sargant! Chuffed to bits to be running for such a worthwhile cause!

Ps - I'm a Scotsman so go easy on me! :d
Got to go and change my application for Edinburgh to the half now, two Marathons will be pushing it a bit! Hope my legs hold out until April! Will see you guys around :tup:

After much deliberating have finally accepted a charity place - I knew I really wanted to run the VLM more than anything so here goes! I'm so happy - and it's on my birthday!!
