Comrades caters well to low/no carb.  It's the home of Tim Noakes Banting fad.

The water stations dispense water in sealed plastic bags - you bite off a corner to drink it/dowse yourself.   You could pour it into your bottles - but with so much stuff available I see no reason to carry anything beyond the first water station.

SS - my marathon qualifier for Comrades was 3:47.  RR has about a 3:40 I think.  Neither of us have been under 11 hours in either direction.   While I am sure it's do-able, I think the guides that suggest you can get under 11 hours with a 4:15 - 4:30  marathon are wrong for most people.

The biggest tip - most important thing - to ensure a finish is not to stop,  Ever.

Yes lowrez - quite unbelievable compared to what we see when there.  As usual, the music in that video gets to my soul.

Just watched a show on tv here (USA) called "Durban Beach Rescue".  It's about the beach rescue squads during the peak summer season.  You would not recognize the place - the beachfront (where we park run) and the beaches are a solid mass of people!

Let us not forget - as our master and guru Slow Duck has taught us by example - that you can always duck into McDonalds and get a burger to take on the run too if the official Comrades aid stations don't have what you want.

Lowrez - I often go to the movies before a race - keeps me off my feet.   Almost makes no difference what's showing.

PS - speaking of patches did you get my email?
