PG3 - Yes, I know about the union jacket vests - but there are quite a few here that are not in the UK or from the UK. So, a patch or similar would identify them as a member of this Board.
So, I know many runners run in a shirt identifying their country - but perhaps we can create a patch or similar to pin onto a sleeve or shoulder that identifies the runner as a member of this Board - would be nice to say hi on the route.
The bus tour id a free option for international runners only. Local runners can't do it. I would highly recommend it for 4 reasons:
1.) Get to see the route and that scares the crap out of you
2.) Get to tour Comrades House (very nice)
3.) Get to see the kids of the Ethambeni School - who will fill your heart with joy and your legs with energy when you see them again on race day
4.) It keeps you off your feet
Well done UFL!
I'm in the non-stretching camp too. I see no use for it.
