Hi Rowan

The results on the website are incorrect.  I should be at 8th place - my time (on my watch) was 43m 23s.

Hi Rowan

The results are STILL incorrrect.  I realise that I only came 8th but to a saddo like me that's important.  Please can you have a word in the correct ear or ears and get it sorted?

Edward - sorry did not got notification of entry from RW - I will put up your time up this weekend when i have time to look at the web-site!

Cheers Rowan!  It all seems a very long time ago, back when the world was warm....

i am out running as well as part of big diet purge! lost nearly stone and a half which makes running easier - 1/2 to 1 stone go and will be back to my 20's weight! Might even beat an hour this time ...

Andrew if you get this - please could you send your email again to and i will arrange time to come and see you regarding chipping!

 same for whoever potentially wishes to sponsor the event!!!

 and thank you - about time, first time ever "fat", John Biffa is my new "diet" hero!

Update -

 thanks to Andrew we will be having chipping this year

believe we have a sponsor for the race so more money for charity and club

charity this year is pied piper appeal

unless i break a leg or violently ill i will run - if get over £300 will run in nurses uniform! training going and up to over 10 miles and had a runners high this morning (endorphins i assume!)

Hi Rowan, congrats on the dieting. I really enjoyed this one last year and will be there again. I've done a few runs round Apperley recently just for fun and the beautiful scenery Chip timing is a great idea, will fix the main problem with last year's race (ultra-slow delivery of results!). I hope you've fixed the problem with the (non) sticky race numbers too?

thanks - i am half the man i used to be but running drives the appetite!

 andrew has a decent printer so there should be no bleeding signs - think back to safety pins!

 done some house sitting and found running around Tewkesbury (3.5 mile loop) somehow a lot easier --- maybe i am just used to the normal rural runs!

anyone doing Dymock half marathon?

10/05/2012 at 15:49

When is it Rowan, i signed up for the Tewkesbury half today and been for a run to the top of Bredon Hill and back down, now there is a race to be organised for that if there isnt one already from the bottom to the top and back down , works out to about 5 mile but the 2.5 mile uphill to the top is a killer .

Dymock week after the Tewkesbury run, will not see this side of 2 hrs but really don't care! - The Bredon HIll Run has a certain ring to it and if not doing Apperley QM would think about it!

please follow @quartermarathon on Twitter - this year we are supporting the Pied Piper Appeal as well as the cricket club!

if you like hilly Dymock is your place to go! i don't mind but so not used to running in 30 degree temperatures - officially knackered! guarantee no 30 degree temperature in September - do people like medals or t-shirts at the end, i liked the t-shirt option!


28/05/2012 at 10:59
How did you get on Rowan ? Bet it was hard going in that heat . The t shirt option is good my daughter loves collecting the t shirts . I tried @quartermarathon but it didn't bring Appereley up .
28/05/2012 at 12:22

i had it down as 2hr 8 running - got cramping at 8 miles, could not run at 11 miles - ran most of the way with 1 hr 50 runners which was very liveable with but heat and hills and inexperience in running longer distances got to me a bit!!! legs like stone today ---!/quartermarathon - try that! trying to sort t-shirts out if can find very cheap supply!

28/05/2012 at 12:28
The main thing is you got round and completed it , I know what you mean when it feels like someone poured concrete in your calfs .
I think a lot of people like the t shirt option , usually they use fruit of the loom t shirt brand .
