It doesn't take long to weed them out...
Tom Wilson: Not long at all smile
That's when the winners get separated from the pack!
Tom Wilson: The actual winner is probably five minutes ahead of this lot at this point smile

These are the "runner-ups", Tom. I always admire these people and even the last person gets my cheers, I know the hours they put into it to make this kind of an effort....
Tom Wilson: Yes, anyone prepared to run 21 kms gets my vote - I've done it and know the effort required smile

I'm never sure if this sort of exertion is good for the participants or not Tom..
Tom Wilson: As long as you have no heart problems, its fine. You can see from these guy's physique and style that they are serious runners, they know what pace they can maintain over the distance and will be aiming to run at that pace for the distance. I know that I couldn't have survived as head of a university department during the worst of the Thatcher years without the exercise! It just gets rid of all the stress.

No fancy dress at the front Tom.
Tom Wilson: They're usually a bit slower smile

Some guys give the impression of running on air - would be nice if possible - even I would enter smile
Tom Wilson: Yes, seeing both feet off the ground tells us they ARE running smile
I like this 'both feet off the ground' moment.
Tom Wilson: Yes, I think I caught at least three in that stage smile

Sheffield looks like London!
Tom Wilson: Only that little bit!
I would still be at the start....
Tom Wilson: With more than 6000 people to get started that's quite possible, Bill smile
My brother did the London Marathon some years back.......but it's not my thing; got to admire them though!

It is either near the start, or these are contenders, Tom.
