Spectating at the London Marathon, Sunday 23 April
Join the Windmilers posse on The Highway to see runners passing about 13.5 and almost 22 miles. Please see the map attached below but note that in recent years we have drifted further east along the road past the big arrow and have stood just over the other side of Glamis Road on the north side of The Highway). The nearest station is Shadwell. A group of us will meet at Wimbledon Station to catch the 8:20 train to Waterloo to give ourselves plenty of time to claim the spectating point, put up the banners and balloons, and be nicely settled in early ready to see the whole field pass by - first the wheelchair athletes, then the para athletes, then the elites, and then the masses! We'll have print-outs of the list of Windmilers we know are running (no doubt there will be others) showing approximate times of when they might come past us in each direction.
London Marathon post-race drinks, Sunday 23 April
Join the Windmilers at All Bar One, Wimbledon for a celebration of springtime running achievements or just to meet other Windmilers on what is always a happy, high-spirited occasion. All Bar One, Wimbledon Hill Road, Wimbledon, SW19 7NA, from 4:30pm, although many will head there straight from the race to attempt a second marathon of the day!
