I'm on Blue. It says in the magazine that because of the Olympic Horse stuff going on (several months after VLM) that access will be restricted around the starts and that runners should use the correct railway station for their start. Does this mean that if I was in the vicinity of Greenwich station (which is quite likely) I might not be able to walk to the blue start from there?

And before anyone advises me to read the instructions properly - I do intend to, just wondered if anyone local knows how much of the park is closed off for Olympic Horseing and whether this means it will/won't be possible to walk between the red and blu start?

OK I have now read the instructions and it says to collect my number I must bring photographic identification of either a driving licence or passport

My driving licence is the old sort without a picture and I don't have a passport.

Anyone else been in this position and if so how did you resolve it please?

They often dont bother checking the ID, but someting with your signature on should be ok

My mum had that problem Baroness (not for VLM but for ID in general) She gave in and got a photo driving licence.

I'd go down with every other piece of ID I could think of. Driving licence and utility bills and anything random that you've got with your name and a picture on it.

Got something to say?
