What's your favourite thing about Fetcheveryone?

The community, the support and the many friends.....
10th Jan 2021
The quality of the website.
8th Jan 2021
The people I've met, but I bloody love the training log and forums.
7th Jan 2021
I am new to this site but it seems to have strong running community feel
3rd Jan 2021
No real names, no real faces. It's like the internet used to be 20 years ago. No flagshaggers. Also the politics is segregated into it's own thread so it can't contaminate the rest of the bored.
1st Jan 2021
The people, of course. And the multitude of training log and analysis functions. And the race database. And the blogs, because I'm nosy like that. And the seriousness and silliness of the forums. And the games. And [self-combusts with indecision].
15th Dec 2020
It's so bloody friendly. Testosterone free zone.
12th Dec 2020
The community.
12th Nov 2020
The forums for chatting and the training pages where I have 10 years of data telling my life story!
7th Nov 2020
The community, the advice, the friends I have met over the years.
2nd Nov 2020
That it is here, without Fetch I am sure I would never have stuck with running, the community spirit is amazing and I've made some great friends because of Fetch, so much help and information and super lovely fetchies. Basically Fetcheveryone rocks!
18th Oct 2020
If there is a friendlier, more knowledgeable bunch of people out there I have yet to find it
17th Sep 2020
The misanthropes' thread.
1st Sep 2020
Logging training and route planning.
1st Sep 2020
Brings together all kinds of athletes who take part for different reasons and with different abilities. The games are great for finding route variations otherwise it’s easy to do the same old circuits.
30th Aug 2020
Fetchies. The community that has grown up around this little website is the most supportive, friendly and knowledgeable group of runner/bikers/swimmers/rowers/crossfitters/walkers/everything-elsers that you'll come across this side of cyberspace.
10th Aug 2020
I’m new and looking forward to seeing what it’s all about.
29th Jul 2020
8th Jul 2020
The games, I can do HM training without the games but being injured and allowed to cycle meant I needed a reason to ride. Conquercise, Fetchpoint gives me a focus to get riding. And you can't forget the people, I've learnt so much from them all
3rd Jul 2020
The games 🤣 I like to calendar of training and the fact it adds everything up for me
26th Jun 2020
The games and the people, so much knowledge, and so much caring.
16th Jun 2020
I’m still getting in to it so like trying out features I keep finding, love the challenge of the games and enjoy listening to the podcast out on runs.
10th Jun 2020
Unobtrusive running kit. 🤣
6th Jun 2020
The community aspect, and the forums.
5th Jun 2020
Everybody says the community but I mainly lurk...would it be terribly antisocial to say the training log?!
4th Jun 2020
The friendship and support - oh, and the training log, of course ;)
27th May 2020
Games! Badges! Motivation!
22nd May 2020
The community. Always there for support.
22nd May 2020
Too early to say but everyone seems very nice 😊
21st May 2020
Its an alternative to Strava and Garmin Connect that offers more ways to analyse your data. There is a good community. There is a face behind the Fetch.
18th May 2020
9th May 2020
The community spirit and the obvious amount of hard work that goes in to making it a fun place to visit.
8th May 2020
5th May 2020
The real mix of opinions and wealth of expertise which people are happy to share,
5th May 2020
Smell, OTDIFH, most deathmatches
18th Apr 2020
Joint favourites are the games and the people on the forums. It's probably a really good training log too if you are into that sort of thing ;-)
16th Apr 2020
Forums? And graphs.
9th Mar 2020
The Fetch family! Such amazing support. Oh and the ability to lose hours oh and check every possible stat!
27th Feb 2020
I have used it for many years on and off and it is friendly. I am not used to friendliness and it makes me happy. Happiness is good right? I just want happiness and people to be happy.
24th Feb 2020
That, mostly, there is support help and acceptance.
6th Feb 2020
All of you! Forum discussions, and the thread of humour that runs through so many of them.
5th Feb 2020
The people who add their experiences of daily runs etc on the various threads.
24th Jan 2020
Its one of the least stressy places on the internet, the slightly more mature membership means less nasty trolling and everyone is genuinely supportive of each other. Admin being a regular user of the website helps too
8th Jan 2020
The community
27th Dec 2019
A great community of friendly people sharing in a website full of great ideas.
22nd Dec 2019
The people I’ve met along the way. The fact that I can race just about anywhere in the uK and the chances are ill meet another fetchie Especially if I wear my fetch vest
20th Dec 2019
Sense of camaraderie, the forums, and the blogs. Always a good chance to re-motivate myself :-)
1st Dec 2019
The all inclusive ethos of the community, lack of trolls or toxic anonymous posters and generally supportive vibe
14th Nov 2019
Sometimes it's the historical data, sometimes blogging, and sometimes the deathmatches
6th Nov 2019
18th Oct 2019
The other Fetchies! The support, encouragement and general camaraderie. Oh and I'm a real sucker for a graph/spreadsheet too!
11th Oct 2019
Inspiration, support, virtual companionship, normalising what I love doing
9th Oct 2019
The supportive nature of the community
7th Oct 2019
It's a safe place.
4th Oct 2019
Friendly, helpful, supportive and fun.
16th Sep 2019
The ethos, and the people who create that ethos. It's not like anywhere online or in the real world that I've ever experienced.
26th Aug 2019
The data, games, and forum are so interesting, you have an excuse to think about running long after you should be doing something else. The Forum is full of helpful, friendly, positive support and great insight!
8th Aug 2019
The training log is very good and easy to navigate.
4th Jul 2019
It’s complete lack of pretension. It does everything I want a running site to, without any of the things that clutter up more commercial sites
6th May 2019
The forums (forae), from where there is a lot of learning, shared goals and humour in a supportive environment
1st May 2019
Great community but its all the stats I can geek out on.
2nd Apr 2019
It's a friendly group of people and the critical mass of experienced marathoners isn't available locally.
26th Feb 2019
All my training is here, since 2007. I’m not as chatty here as I used to be but still follow a few old friends.
3rd Feb 2019
Seeing my running stats, the advice and support I get from the great Fetch running community and Jock Itch’s blogs!
23rd Jan 2019
21st Jan 2019
Friendly, informative fun
18th Jan 2019
It's a place for everyone, whether they want to geek out on running stats, talk about running or chat about whatever else is happening in their lives.
10th Jan 2019
It’s a very inclusive community that accepts everyone regardless.
1st Jan 2019
The training log and analysis. I'm such a geek!
10th Dec 2018
Consistently lovely. Leave it for a while and it still bumbles on, meeting random strangers and being cheered on. Buying random kit and feeling part of something from afar.
6th Dec 2018
It is such a supportive community. There is always someone to congratulate you when you achieve, commiserate with you if things are not going well and laugh with you when you have experienced the funny side of life
3rd Nov 2018
The support and the friends you make
20th Oct 2018
The people I've met and friends I've made over the years. Oh and the logging if 10 years worth of training!

Bantz on 220

The ability to easily keep track of my training, mileage, WAVA etc.
6th Aug 2018
The friends I’ve made, real and virtual

Just one thing? :-o Oh alright - Fetchies. They are just awesome in so many ways.
16th Jul 2018
The community, support and friendliness
11th Jul 2018
Always different, always the same.
9th Jul 2018
The community and the training stats pretty awesome.
6th Jul 2018
The forums, being able to chat to like minded people, or dip into the sub 2:45 marathon forum for inspiration, or the ultra forums to talk to like minded dafties. I love the stats, they dont lie, so many many stats, I love them.
4th Jul 2018
30th Jun 2018
Being able to look back easily at years worth of training and race data and gage where I'm at now based on what I've done in the past. Plus the familiarity of people who I'd call friends who I've met through here.
27th Jun 2018
The forums for definite. I love the fact that the different threads have different cultures, and I get different things from each one.
27th Jun 2018
The support of friends who have advised me and supported me to run faster, further and for longer than I could have ever imagined, particularly since 2003 when I had my hip resurfacing operation.
18th Jun 2018
The support of people that I have mostly never met is astonishing. This is a real community :).
17th Jun 2018
You lot. All of you. But especially YOU... ~ points at you ~
16th Jun 2018
The whole deal - the people, the training log, the stats, the fun, the help, the kindness to strangers off the internet, the Fetch Mile. What have I missed?
15th Jun 2018
Only 250 chars? Firstly the logs - whether walking, running or cycling - and the maps and the times/elevations/splits etc etc Next - Fetch is online, never more than a few hours away and responds to all/any comments or requests. And the blogs/forums.
15th Jun 2018
The lovely, lunatic people
15th Jun 2018
It’s a community dedicated to the mutual good. And great to have at your back when the octopuses come at you.
15th Jun 2018
The good friend I've made.
15th Jun 2018
All of it ...Fetch is a giant rainbow of bright happy colours and a very large family.
15th Jun 2018
I love all of it but especially the people. Never met a fetchie that I didn't like.
15th Jun 2018
The people.
15th Jun 2018
the 700 group
15th Jun 2018
I love feeling part of a inclusive community.
15th Jun 2018
My husband. And the training log is a very close second. ;-)
15th Jun 2018
The banter in certain forums. We all know which ones ;-)
15th Jun 2018
The people who write blogs, give advice, keep me amused and improve my mental health. The sheer variety of the forum, from serious running to utter trivia, logging on is always a gateway to pleasure.
14th Jun 2018
I was looking for a place to log my runs and analyse the info. Fetch offered all that and more. The forum on RW was becoming a bit 'blagh'; Fetch was fresh and friendly..!
14th Jun 2018
It is so friendly and supportive and I learn new things so often in the forums
14th Jun 2018
14th Jun 2018
The community but ‘Who Squares Wins’ comes a very close second😉
14th Jun 2018
The forums, everything from the craft thread to GOT... and the training log and associated stats.
14th Jun 2018
The people.
14th Jun 2018
It makes you believe anything’s possible. Without Fetch I’d never have run a marathon, my proudest achievement.
14th Jun 2018
Lovely people
14th Jun 2018
The community, friendliness and generally positive vibe
14th Jun 2018
Where to start! Probably the freedom to follow my gut, and to be happy in work; but also the flexibility to have more time with my lovely wife and my boy than I would otherwise have had. Ditto for the chance to run in daylight!
14th Jun 2018
Oh, where to start? Great community of inspiring people. Possibly one of the most consistently helpful and supportive groups ever. Irreverent but often smart and knowledgeable too. The tools, stats, race directory etc. are pretty brilliant too. :-)
