People obviously collected them and took them home as souvenirs. :-)

Maybe someone forgot to turn off their watch at the end of the race.

Philip, go into Your Account and the panel on the right shows all your markers. Click on the symbol and it will take you to its location on the map.

Without checking the guide, I think you can only have a single marker heading in the same direction located at the same point. If someone else had the same idea as you, their marker might have splattered yours

Philip - it's quite likely that a number of people did the same thing as you. I have a recollection from some time back (somebody will correct me if I dreamt it) that if multiple relays end up in the same place then all but the most recently arrived are deleted. Can't remember the details of the reason why or explain further if that doesn't quite fit with what you're describing.

I have a similar recollection to Andy so it could be that they got merged. The other possibility is that they got blown up by a detonator. London is a dangerous place for relay markers. Please look after your relay markers. Remember a relay marker should be for life not just for the VMLM!

I think the reasoning behind it was because if they were allowed to collect in the same place, then the next person to run East (for example) would be carrying lots of relay markers and they would carry on accumulating

CumbriAndy's logic sounds quite reasonable. Still, they cost me 2000 points each and I got 8000 back so quids in

For important updates on the rules, please make sure you're a member of the game group. Signing up to play the game will automatically add you to the group.

If you have a problem - usually it's a marker that you believe you hit, but hasn't moved, please send me feedback detailing the problem, making sure you:

1) be specific about where the marker is (an ID would be handy, but failing that, a decent description of its location may well be enough).
2) let me know the date and time of the run
3) don't report the marker. If it gets removed, I can't check it.
4) be quick. Some markers move on, e.g. daily Garmin moves, or bugs/relays getting transported on by other runners.
5) remain calm. You just did running. That's a good thing, right?

I may not get to all reports in time, but if enough of you do report problems, it gives me data to find the causes of the problems.
