Easier to get into than MdS, this seems to be a great alternative
Spoke to people at the Comrades expo and this seems to be a great event without the hassle of trying to get into the marathon De Sables. It is held in October
Has anyone done it ? I would like to put it on my bucket list , perhaps for 1- 2 years time. NO experience of hot desert running and just a few ultras under my belt. Any advice or reports most welcome
Oh, and apparently there are giraffes along the trail side!
Don't get little touches like that at the London marathon.
Seriously though, there are probably more than half a dozen races in SA that would justify the cost of a plane ticket.
Thanks for that. Perhaps that needs to go on the bucket list now that Comrades has been done
If this thread pops up in a search , and you are considering it as an event. Please PM me .
You didn't have much luck at Comrades between the food poisoning and the injury.
Still got a smashing time though!
Another South African event, which all the local runners raved about, was the Addo elephant trail.
