Providing that enough members are
interested, a coach will be arranged between Stowmarket and the
starting areas for the London Marathon. The coach will have a
number of pick-up points through Stowmarket and one in Needham Market
before heading down the A12.
Families and spectators for our
runners are welcome too. The coach will drop off runners at the
start. Spectators and supporters will be dropped off in a central location
handy for access to the route. From
here you choose your own way.
At an agreed time later in the
afternoon, everyone meets up at Cleopatra's Needle along the
Embankment to catch the coach back to Stowmarket.
Surprising as it sounds, it's a
tiring, though enjoyable, day for the spectators too. Remember
to dress appropriately and bring plenty of refreshments.
Places on the coach MUST be booked well in advance
and priority goes to club runners and their supporters. An
application form for places on the coach is available
