meldy - that's our fridge man.  We even had an angler coming over (with his morning tinnie in hand) to give us money to pass on to him for H4H

I'm doing the Park Run tomorrow dressed as a pair of centipede testicles in a Bat Man outfit wearing an Elvis wig

.. at least that will be better colour co-ordinated than the stuff you normally race in.. 


Hahahahaha!!   

Fair point well made though - especially if you saw what I DID actually wear for the Park Run this morning....

 When did I become parkrunfun?

We'll have a less of that sort of thing - we non fancy dress runners are miserable, grumpy sods who will run a mile at breakneck speed in the opposite direction if fun is involved you know!

Well I did get advised that I was the 'fattest in the top 10' after last week's parkrun......so I can see the resemblance!

How did the caterpillar do ? I didn't see it on the highlights or in the race itself ?

I saw someone being interviewed talking about "the caterpillar" during the run. FWICT he wasn't part of it but was involved with it. Turns out they were running side-by-side, not just in a long 75m long line.

I didn't see it on any of the coverage, but you'd expect it to have been picked up by some cameras.

Cougie, searching the results with the surname of the OP gives one name, who finished in the same time as a whole lot of other people who all also had the same time at halfway.  Must be them - around 7:40 or so.

Its definitely them - theres a whole bunch of people dressed alike........looks nowt like a caterpillar though.

Maybe they went into pupa stage around Embankment and going down the Mall they were flying!

(This is my second caterpillar joke in a week.)

Taxi!

Can't remember much about the caterpiller - they were 2 abreast and walking at mile 17 - walking very slowly I might add.

If that's what you want to do then fine, it's not running a marathon though is it.

I passed them at about mile 3 or 4, so they must have started quite near the front? They were right over to one side of the road and in quite a neat formation, so not too tricky to get past to be fair, but I was surprised that they hadn't started at the back.

I passed them at the toilets near mile 6.  They were trying to exit the toilet area but it was very busy and nobody was of a mind to move aside for them.  The front of it edged its way out just in front of me and as I went past some of the middle segments were bitching about the amount of toilet stops and surely everyone could go at the same time
