Comrades 2016

Posted: 28/01/2016 at 17:22

This is my first post on the ultra forum!! Comrades is a race on my to do list despite never doing an ultra before (I've run marathons albeit fairly slowly). Having read the thread my only concern would be travelling to SA. As a female I'd be travelling with another female friend and I'm worried whether we'd be safe? I know that companies such as Sports Tours International do packages but I'd rather arrange something independently but I'm nervous about the whole thing. Sorry if this is a bit of a bizarre question and its not my intention to offend anyone.

Also as a first timer is there any wisdom around doing an up or down run. I don't suppose any one is "easier" but in terms of logistics is one more preferable to another.

Sorry to hijack this years thread but I love reading the build up to this race!

Ironman Lanzarote 2015

Posted: 27/01/2015 at 20:31

I'm doing Lanza this year after a DNF in 2013.

Just got back from a week there. Did some cycling including some of the bits I didn't do in 2013. I'm staying at the Princess Ico apartments which are just across the road from Club Oceano and are owned by the same people.

Unfortunately due to how my shifts fall I'm going out the week before and staying Monday to Monday as I want to go to the awards dinner (not to pick one up, just have a beer and some grub!)

Blue Peter I follow you on Twitter and see you are doing the crazy Tour of Sufferlandria. Wait until you get to Blender and ISLAGIATT!!

I used Nirvana for my 1st Ironman in Austria in 2011. must admit didn't have great service from them and they are pricey. The main problem is that we flew sleazy jet to Slovenia and there was only one flight a day. As we took pushed back off the stand at Stansted we could see 10-20 bike boxes left on the Tarmac as there hadn't been room on the flight! Some people never got their bikes........not Nirvanas fault but was one if many things that went "wrong"

Hi Schmunks- can you just confirm you have my address now for my order. I did send it after your original e-mail, but I'm not on any of the lists on the thread.

I know you don't want to be hassled via email etc so have put my query here.

Flying out on the Thursday come back Monday evening so we can go to the awards ceremony (not that I expect to get one, it's just I've never been to one before!)

intercontinental still sorting out their rates although I have been assured that a room has been "reserved" for me!

I'm doing this. Flights booked with BA just waiting for Intercontinental to release their Ironman rates which apparently aren't yet available despite me e-mailing for the past 2 months.

Travel Insurance for Ironman

I've used Dogtag before but had to declare a medical condition (over active thyroid). The first year there was no additional premium when I renewed they charged me for it!

For a recent event Dogtag seemed to have really gone up in price so I went with Snowcard where I didn't have to declare my medical condition. The only thing with this one is that you have to cover the whole holiday period not just the event day.

As with most things you won't find out how good they are until you have to make a claim......
