How did they measure a segment for 12 hours? I am not sure my Garmin will survive a the run.

Cheers, it will probably depress me in the weekly mile ranking, but maybe I take some motivation out of it.

Also good to see what others are running.

Angela, any chance you can link to the group? I don't seem to find it on Strava.

It isn't under events, I check there quite regularly

I'm a big fan on Don Oliver's programme - if you can find his book "Make sure of your Comrades medal" it's worth picking up... Otherwise Nikki's Alsoran website puts up Don's schedule each month... which also is a great place to look around for first timers...

Does anyone know where to get this book as a physical one? while I love my kindle some books make a lot more sense holding in hand.

I already have the relentless forward book, the plans in that will have to do otherwise.

I started to look at the 'relentless forward' training plan and I am surprised it only really contains 1 marathon and 1 run of 30 miles.

Looking at 50-100 miles on 50 miles a week.

Depending on the ballot I will do london or pick somewhere else. It's a good way to get to 26 miles in company.
When entering Davos a couple if years ago I ran Paris within 80s of my PB but got injured 2 weeks after, this time I will have to be just more careful not to go too hard.

What does it 'really' mean?

Aiming to knock off sub 3.20 again for pen B, over the line in less than 1 minute this year (in the company of a Speedy Duck)

How does it compare to London? Are you just stuck if you are too far back? What is too far back? I am sure you can start too far forward.

4:20 gives you a seeding in section F

4:00 gives you a seeding in section D

How much difference it makes to our experience I don't know. I run a marathon in October and hope for a sub 4, but I won't be disappointed if I only manage a 4:19. When I entered the race I entered as an event, only recently got time ambitions for it.

I dont think Umhlanaga is a good choice before the race. It's just too far making the need to drive, park etc, etc.  After the race however, it is superb

That's the area a work mate of mine recommended, and he is from Durban. Well, I am staying in the Hilton, don't want to be by myself.

Didn't buy the watch, it looked to 'Lance Armstrong' for me. But for £fish you can't really go wrong.

I am thinking of travelling Wednesday (arriving Thursday) to Wednesday (arrive back on Thursday), does it sound too short or too long for a place like Durban?

Got my entry in. Well too tired to look for hotel and flight now.

I booked myself onto the Friday tour as well, with an outside chance of getting in a Saturday parkrun, while I am there. Apparently it is a really stupid idea, but I like parkrun.
