Well done everyone, especially the first timers who know understand why comrades lives up to its name ... It really does humble you.
First time a comrades went exactly to plan for me, did 8.43 and finally got the Bill Rowan at the fifth attempt on the down run. I am really suffering today but it was all worth it. Was wearing my patch on my back and saw Skybluearab and I think John who was also wearing a UK vest.
Up run next year is 4 June in case anyone is interested.
