As in previous years H90J invite all members to come and cheer on the runners. Join our team to hand out jelly babies and slices of orange and participate in this great event. Please bring along contributions (or donate beforehand) as we never have enough - best to bring oranges ready sliced ! And if you can wear club strip it really helps our running members and friends to spot us.
The anticipated location will again be on Trafalgar Way, E14 5ST (near roundabout at entrance to Billingsgate Market-between just a bit beyond mile 19) The club banner will be flying so we are easy to spot.
This location is chosen as being a point where there is maximum visibility, spectators are fewer and runners probably appreciate a bit of support and morale boosting after losing the crowds around Canary Wharf
Refreshments and loos are within 10 minutes walk at Canary Wharf.

TO GET THERE :-
Quickest is via Jubilee Line via Stratford or West Ham to Canary Wharf, which is the default route if the DLR is strike bound . If the DLR is operating these are the alternative options :-
If arriving ahead of the mass runners :
For shortest walk, go to Blackwall DLR. Poplar DLR is also convenient. (see note below)
If arriving while the mass runners are passing through :
You may have difficulty crossing the roads to join the group, so the suggestion is to go to Poplar DLR, and use the station bridge to cross to the south side of Aspen Way and walk eastwards to Trafalgar Way
