You get less of a crowd there, more relaxed. Most celebs run from there as well as some good for age. Enjoy

I've started from Green a few times over the years and the big advantage is that there are only around 2-3 thousand people, so even if you start at the very back, you will only take around 5 mins before you cross the start line. When you join up with red (and then blue) runners, you will find that you join at a point where they are all pretty fast, so if you are more of a plodder like me, you need to be aware that you don't get carried along at a faster pace than is good for you!! This year I took my camcorder round with me and got a great memento of my day. Managed to film a lot of the (so-called) celebs at the start and quite a few fancy dressers as well. Good LUck !!!

Hi folks, how have people found out where they are starting? has more info been sent out? just got a bit worried as I haven't received anything since the initial acceptance letter.

Many thanks

You are fine - generally you know what colour start you are on from how you got your place - red for charity places, blue for ballot, green for celebs, sponsors etc

 The Red start is the best

Many thanks Keith much appreciated!! it will be blue for me then! Can't wait for the day but at the same time not a big fan of these dark cold evening runs!!

Thanks again!

I am looking forward to this but must say, the red start certainally is the party start! I started there in 2011 and it was a great laugh. Especially with all the costumes etc!

I love the camcorder idea! I might do that with my phone :O)
