Notes from Members

  • John66 says: I'm going to kick Max's arse. Not ass. Don't think she's going to bring a donkey. Hope I don't get my foot stuck :-)
  • Night-owl says: can't wait for this now, its so exciting :)
  • JEJ says: Will run to 1209 in 3:44
  • Making_Tracks says: Need me to handout the Jelly Babies at the 4, 280ft mark? Nope - OK I'll run and prove it's cool to be lapped.
  • Siamese Pete says: I'm not sure I'll need the 4 beers to chuck up
  • mxhornet says: I'll be the one furthest away from their pb
  • K8 says: day after work christmas social.... could be messy
  • RFJ says: Beware the ground may tremble if I run at pace..... may need the long/triple jump area as an escape bay to stop my heavy frame...... RFJ jnr will also be in attendance and may well try to beat me in the mile..... (he has a PB of 2:48 in the 800m earlier in the summer and I think he has got much stronger since then...)

    Look forwards to coming and to meeting you all.
  • More of a Tortoise says: Apparently the Oxford social are decamping here and I have to run!! Will there be a prize for slowest Fetchie over a mile??

    do I have to do anything else to enter this or will I just pop along?

  • JessM says: I might even make it this time, although I'm hoping to sell my house and have to make an effort to get there rather than the 20 min jog that I didn't manage in December
  • kink bunny says: um maybe :)
  • Runs With Coyotes says: Do I get a prize for traveling from 5,000 miles away to run?
