Morning All, I just thought Iā€™d put the feelers out to see if any other Fetchies are doing/thinking of doing this in 2018 or if anyone has done it previously and what they thought of it?

Thanks

I did it this year in the heatwave that hit Western Europe that wekend! . Its very flat and if its not too hot has potential for a stonking PB. Well supported along the route and you finish in the main area.

The city is very modern and well worth a visit. We flew into Amsterdam and caught the train to rotterdam. Some clubmates did the ferry.

Thanks for that Girlie. Hopefully it will be a bit cooler this year! I think Iā€™m also going to fly in to Amsterdam and train it from there šŸ‘

I did it a few years ago. Nice race, flat and well supported. Fly and then the train from Amsterdam is very easy. We stayed in a hotel virtually on the start line. I'd advise booking somewhere early with free cancellation just in case.

Thanks JenLov. I' already done as you suggested and booked somewhere close to the start. Just need to sort the flights and see if I can manage to put together a decent block of training :)

Got something to say?
