Comrades 2017

Posted: Yesterday at 17:49

The only slightly annoying for me about the new date is the fact that currently Comrades falls about the time of the last bank holiday in May, so means 1 more day to have to take off work.

SS - You will be fine running a marathon and then Comrades and in answer to your question, Yes it is catching

Cool a list is starting already. The race seems much closer now

I'm useless at updating so please put me down for 2nd October, Kielder Marathon.

Becca - good luck tomorrow at the stones. Will be interested how you get on with the route (how well signposted) and how easy the course is underfoot. I am running the entire length on the august bank holiday so any help is good help. I did a reccy the other week and have to say the signposts do look amazing, hope its like that all the way. Fingers crossed the weather is on your side as well.

At least on the up run the seeding isn't as important since you run out of Durban on the freeway and you can get into your running straight away, all be it slowly up the hills!!!!

Another fingers and crossed toes from me for you JAR. Hope sense prevails and you get recognised in the results.

I started back last week, nice and gentle and not too far. Although do have a 50k planned at the end of the month. Like Becca, no speed to speak of but at least pain free and my mind is willing again as well!!!!

MAC3 - great report. I too walked through the left hand line of children. Best part of the race EVER.

Yep, that's me. It made all the pain of the last 15k through Westville, where i wanted to stop and let the bus go all worth it. Mind you, to get into and hold that position it meant i had to run the 2k or so without stopping!!!!

Thats brilliant lowrez thanks. I meant 9.50 on the youtube feed but my finish is on this link, my fault for being too ambiguous!! I appear at 9.54.51 on the TV coverage time with the "official" 10 hour bus (guy with flag)!! I am on the left hand side (as you look at the coverage) and am wearing a replica vest from the 2012 GB olympics so its mostly shades of blue in the form of the GB flag.

My moment of fame, never appeared in on the TV in my previous attempts. At least i am running!!!
