3.03 for me which was about right for my current life and training, great event as always but was a shame to see the Fetchpoint missing.

I saw the fetchpoint (twice)... thought they were great :-)

I missed the fetchtpoint - where was it? In fact, the only sign of fetch I saw was Ron Burgundy's top.

Strong finish Ron ... just couldn't keep with you two over the last 2 miles.

It was at the mile 11/20 point just before you leave the industrial estate. I think it was undercover as a water station...

Thanks DrDan... I managed to save some energy by not aeroplaning and singing to the Kaiser Chiefs ;-):-)

We were the noisy (ish) ones at 11 and 20, you clearly missed JJ Flash molesting one of the athletes!

We were there but there weren't very many of us. There didn't seem to be much interest this year on this or the fetchpoint thread. I've told the organisers to find some other group to run the water station next year. We had t borrow some parkrun volunteers just to have enough people for water. Mind you there was a fetchie amongst them :)

Ahhh, I do recall the water station ... although that industrial estate is all a blurr now. You were undercover as a water station marshalls and I was undercover as a Hyde Park Harrier.

And in future I'll leave the 22M aeroplaning and singing to the Kaiser Chiefs until at least the 24 mile point ...

well done everyone. Guess so many races around now that its difficult to get volunteers for them all, Sounds like fetchpoint at usual place then if a little quieter. Good work JJ x

The great dollop
These things go in cycles don't they. It was certainly the quietest branding turn out from fetchies, but there was quite a few in other kit that I saw making it happen. I'm sure in a few years time it will return as a FE target race for a dozen or so people and then it will rise up the discussion threads again !

Got something to say?
