RunningBob I'll be there with the young lady Bobs and maybe even Mrs Bob to make up the 4 x Bob relay.  My first FETCH event but I recognise a few of the usual suspects from Bramhall Park.

sLickster Blowing a gale and pretty nippy so decided to go for a 5.30. Was about 10th after first 150m! Paced exactly to plan until last 200m when noted Slowboy 25-30 metres in front of me so went flat out. 28 seconds later and I took him just before the line :P Hermitage Harriers RC, Midland Masters A C, Team derby runner 5:16 5:22 5:30 5:22 69.13
Spally I did the Sport Relief Mile so would be good to see how I get on in a proper mile race -provided I can sort out transport

UltraDunc Only just ! would have preferred Garmin time of 5:47 but he's liar ! Maybe a 12.5 mile run the night before not such good preparation or the 5 mile recovery run in the morning , still I like testing myself ! Next time I'll rest a little and hope that there isnt a gale blowing :-)
