A thread for runners and supporters!

We're aiming to have a Fetchpoint to support our runners, and all the other participants in the Boston (UK) Marathon on April 14th. We'll be handing out fruit, making some noise, and providing essential counselling and tough love to get you through those last 6.2 miles.

Pending confirmation, we're hoping to be around mile 20 (near the "We'll Meet Again" war museum).

More news soon. Follow this thread to stay up to date. Do say you'll join us!

Mr T will certainly be making an appearance at some stage to join you - he'll probably divide his time between fetchpoint and the parkrun water station.

I'm sure this needs a bit of boinging.

Are you aware that the water stations have a fancy dress competition and they get voted on by the runners and the winners get (I think I'm right here) £100 to do with what they will. Boston park run waterstation won last year.

If you're at mile 20, I think you get the half marathon runners too so extra supplies may be needed.......

We've had a couple of mentions from the Boston Marathon organisers on their social media. Looking forward to this :-)

List of Fetchpointers
eL Bee!
Mr T (some of the time)

Shout out to be added to the list.

Minardi - I *didn't* know about the fancy dress. We'll have a think about that.

I’m sure the Fetch theme will suffice!

Got something to say?
