Each time we have a race in Thanet we open a new thread, we run the race, and then there are a few weeks before the thread for another event happens. I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread which carries on irrespective of what races are being run.

CB, I've started my timer to see how long it takes Snoop to find this thread and entertain us with his Fannet Memories.....
I give it an hour......

Hello CB & Scotty

10/12/2007 at 13:58

sorry but Thanet makes me think of only one thing

I'd rendez-vous with Janet
Quite near the Isle of Thanet
She looked more like a gannet
She wasn't half a prannet
Her mother tried to ban it
Her father helped me plan it
And when I captured Janet
She bruised her pomegranate

Oh, you ask Joyce and Vicky
If I ever shaped up tricky
I'm not a blooming thicky
I'm Billericay Dickie
And I'm doing very well

Hiya Tracey G.

I'm not from the beautiful isle myself, but having done each of the Thanet 10s, 20s and Marathons 3 times now over the past 4 years I can't help but be a little attached to the place (even if technically speaking the 2007 Thanet 20 wasn't actually in Thanet). I am mightily impressed by how many events TRAC host each year and how well organised and marshalled they all are.

Frosty, an Ian Durie fan perhaps? A  great song that, I was playing it only a couple of days ago.

What a great idea.

Apropos nothing - I was talking to some of my TriClub buddies during a very wet and cold cycle ride on sunday and there was a resounding THANK YOU to all of the marshalls at the recent 10 miler.  They did a stonking job by all accounts in the most terrible conditions too. another resounding success for the fannit road runners!!

Nice song Yeo!

PSC, yep, would consider it one of the more "interesting" marshalling moments!!!!

LOL.  Rather you than me Cinders!  another extended TRRAC jelly baby moment by all accounts.

You know, I had a box of jelly babies ready for the runners but they got soggy so I had to give up on them !

An amusing moment at training on Sunday. I was asked to thank my lad Al for his work at the finish, I was then asked if the young lad with him (Henry) was my grandson!

I am trying to change my image to something more seasonal but RW is playing silly beggars with it at the moment so I am masquerading temporarily as the Man in Black!

Im a fan of the thanet races not really sure about the place itself. Ive done the last  10 milers and even tho they have been just a tad windy and wet i do enjoy them, i think its because im near the sea.....

Ohdearyme, Scotty - I ruined your prediction there a tad.

Sorry Guys - this thread has a very limited lifespan, a bit like the aged population of Fannit itself - on its last legs.

Better instead start one on on somewhere in Kent where something happens occasionally....

I have been to Thanet ................................................

And what happens there, apart from ASBO's and teenage pregnancy? 

10/12/2007 at 18:39

well.....apart from teenage delinquents and a higher proportion of pramfaces than in Margit, nothing much.

I ain't advocating Chatham's any better than Fannit - just not so many 'olds' there.
