Big Fetch Mile - Bedford
It was a grand day out on Saturday, as Fetchies from far and wide gathered at Bedford International Athletics Stadium for the Big Fetch Mile. It's by no means the first time we've done this, but it was the first since we became independent - and the mood was one of celebration, fun and friendship!
The clue is in the name really - our website is for everyone - and our competitors ranged from 5:14 to 13:46, and from 10 to 74 - we cheered them all home.
There were some dramatic and impressive sprint finishes, lots of big efforts all round, coupled with a healthy dose of showboating and not taking ourselves too seriously.
And with all events involving Fetchies, it's never just about the running. I swayed home a few hours later, with shoulders like a lobster, and a big grin on my face that has yet to fade.
The full set of photos from the talented Silvershadow are available on our Facebook page.
If you missed out, or even if you didn't, you might be pleased to know that there are at least two further Fetch Miles planned for Moorways, Derby (probably 2nd September) and Cambridge (probably 2nd December). But we had so much fun, we're very tempted to go on a bit of a tour! Leave a comment below if you can make Derby or Cambridge, and if not, tell us where we should aim for!
