Hi ,
It looks like you're using an ad blocker.



The revenue generated from the adverts on the site is a critical part of our funding - and it's because of these ads that I can offer the site for free. But using the site for free AND blocking the ads doesn't feel like a great thing to do, which is why this box is so large and inconvenient. Some sites will completely block your access, but I'm not doing that - I'm appealing to your good nature instead. Did you know that you can allow ads for specific sites, whilst still blocking them on others?

Thanks,
Ian Williams aka Fetch

About Me

In Spring 2009 I found myself approaching age 40 and about 3 stone overweight. I decided I needed to do something about it. After watching the London Marathon, I decided to start running and entered the ballot. I started going to Bedfont Lakes with some friends and walking/running on Sundays. I was soooo unfit! Throughout the summer, they stopped going but I carried on on my own.

After a while I found out about the Bedfont Lakes parkrun, joining that in July 09 and found out about FETCH from people there. Along the way, I discovered that running is a social activity as much as a sport.

With help and encouragement from my friends, I took 15 minutes off of my parkrun PB in the first year. Attempting longer races, I got a few 10k races under my belt and I completed the Eastbourne and Reading Half Marathons in March 2010. I achieved a first sub-2hr time at the Richmond Half Marathon (May 2010).

The second half of 2010 was focussed on marathons and by the end of October I had completed 5 :-o - the highlight being a 4:15 at Berlin at the end of September.

2011 was a mixed year where I achieved my first sub-4:00 marathon at Hannover then rather lost my way. I entered Robin Hood to give myself a goal which proved to be a poor decision. Thankful for the social side of Fetch...

2012 was the year when serious, consistent training was applied and brought the desired results, incl. 3:43 Brighton marathon and 1:33 Gosport half.

2013
Sub 3:30 marathon [achieved 3:24 at Brighton]
