oooh exciting. I think i paid for one last year so look forward to receiving it in the post.
Thanks for posting that strava link lowrez. I signed up to strava earlier in the year and joined the group this week. Will be interested to see peoples training patterns to try and glean some information of how to run the race properly!!!!
Welcome aboard Matt. You will have a great time between now and the 4th June.
Echo becca's comments. I have traveled alone the last few times and have felt perfectly safe. The hotels all around the Hilton and beachfront are full of runners so you are never short of someone to chat to if you want. But the usual precautions like not going at night and not walking down strange empty streets still apply just like any big city really. When we get closer to raceday, lots of lists will start appearing with hotels and flights and you will be guaranteed to see Comrades runners on yours, whichever it is.
Maybe catch you at a race before Durban as well somewhere.
Quick question becca, thinking of going via dubai this time and was wondering what a good price for the tickets would be. Never looked at those prices before so don't know what's good or bad. thanks. Hope training going good.
