Difficult to hear when your colour was supposed to start and where from. However finish line was well organised and medal was fab! Only saw Trefalfar Square and St. Paul's, didn't go near any other landmarks.

I raised enough to get all the items but never received my last 2 top / hoody. I have been contacting and no one has come back to me. Please can someone call me on 07725 591 636 as I would really like these items as I worked hard to get the fundraising together

Fabulous atmosphere, but very busy. Next year I will stay in first line to avoid the crowd. Otherwise, fantastic organisation and encouraging marshals.
