The Doctor K Cup

86 watchers
The fourth annual Doctor K Cup will take place on October 17th.

How to join in

Firstly, add the 2020 Doctor K Cup to your Fetch portfolio.

All you need is a GPS watch or app. On the day, RUN AT LEAST 5K WITHOUT LOOKING AT YOUR WATCH. The Fetch Benchmark system will pull out your fastest 5k from your run (so you can include it as part of your long run if you like). The person who gets closest to their prediction will be declared the winner (though the judges decision is final!).

It would be lovely if you could upload your 'K' pics to the gallery (make a K shape with your fingers) to help us remember Doctor K and all the Fetchies we have lost.

2020 Instructions

Add the following race to your portfolio:

fetcheveryone.com/races/the-doctor-k-cup-4861504

Enter your predicted time by October 16th (the day before the run).

On the 17th October, run at least 5k WITHOUT LOOKING AT YOUR WATCH OR GETTING ANY PACING HELP!!!

RESULTS

fetcheveryone.com/doctorkcup.php

Fetch will extract the results by looking at your benchmarks for 5k (so for your own sake, avoid tunnels, tall buildings, heavy tree cover, pylons etc). If you are running a local 5k loop, please add a bit on, just to make sure that your watch registers at least 5k's worth of data. But no peeking!

The person who is closest to their predicted time will win the 'Doctor K Cup' for one year.

NB We normally do this using parkrun results, because Doctor K was a big parkrun fan - but because of the pandemic, we're resorting to GPS data this year. If you *don't* have a GPS, you can use an app on your phone. And if you don't have a suitable phone, then please accept our apologies for this year.
