    Hi Everyone,

    A happy Friday and less than a month to go for the Big Day! Hope everyone’s training is going well and all the best for this last stretch. You are nearly there!

    We had a meeting in the office about Race Day, discussing all the support we can provide to all of you on the day. Some exciting developments about which I will keep everyone posted through this discussion forum.

    Have a nice weekend and hope to hear from everyone 🙂

    Best wishes,
    Tanya

    Hello everyone,

    Getting even closer to the big day! Please regularly check your emails as I have been emailing updates/info about Race Day and will continue to do so next week. Thank you to all who have so far sent me their Running Numbers and their Starting Zone Colour. If you haven’t yet done so please email those to me – fundraising@msatrust.org.uk

    Some of you have expressed interest in getting in touch with other MSAT runners before the day. If you are happy to share your email address with other runners, please drop me an email (tanya.mitra@msatrust.org.uk) to give your consent. I will share that email address with everyone else.

    In other news we are delighted to say that the Choir – London City Voices (http://www.londoncityvoices.co.uk/) will be joining us at the Westminster Cheer Point and singing and spurring you across the finish line! So watch out for a sea of singers wearing our Orange T-shirts!

    Hope all the training is coming along well and you are almost Marathon ready!

    Best wishes,

    Tanya

    Happy Friday everyone and welcome to the first of many posts for the 2018 Virgin Money London Marathon! I encourage all the runners to post something on this forum – would be a great way to know your fellow MSAT team members as well as pick up on some good advice. Some good topics of discussion are –

    Have you done this Marathon before? How has your experience been? What is your training method (s) for the run? Have they been working fine for you? If you haven’t already, please check out the LM’s official site for some great training advice and race etiquette – http://www.virginmoneylondonmarathon.com/en-gb/training/

    With more than 2 months to go for the big day this is a good time to look into accommodation, arrangements to get to the start line etc. If you already have arranged for this, do share them with the other runners.

    I will be posting more updates re: Race packs, Trust support on the day as we get closer the time. Watch this space!

    That’s all for now! Have a nice weekend.

    Best wishes,
    Tanya

    Good Afternoon, I’m having an afternoon making some marathon arrangements (ordering new kit and some gels etc) and thought I’d check in. I’m in Aberdeenshire and the snow has hit hard, panicking a bit as I want to stick to my training plan but currently can’t even make out where the pavement is! 😳 Never really gone on the treadmill for any distance, is anybody else having to make alternative running plans until the “beast from the east” does one?! Any advice?
    Other than horrible weather, I hope everybody’s training is going well. It’s my first marathon so currently I’m feeling a lot of nerves but also really excited.
