Love it. Personally i like top right (with up run added) only difference. Just identifies that year and the challenges that either up or down bring.

Happy to go with majority.

I liked the round yellow one. Very traditional and screams Comrades to me.

If I had a preference, it would be with date and then direction included in one patch.

Yes it is. And i can say that on this forum. A couple of short inclines each lap but generally flat. Have used it as qualifier before.

I think its on 5th feb. I'll be doing it and using it to get a safe qualifier and then going for quicker seeding at london (which is 23rd and not 24th april the next time someone does the list). Hopefully willbe fitter by then!

Right, I'm in. Flights and Belaire Suites booked so Matt, if you want to meet up at any point, then pm your email address and I can get my details across and anything else that would be helpful.

I've usually stayed at Gibela Hostel but fancied something more central to Durban this year and Expedia offered a ridiculous deal.

Could someone add my qualifier to the list please as rubbish at formatting- London on 24th April.

Warren- Great time and nice to have out the way. Did try to comment on Strava but phone played up.

I have to say I am very excited!

Hey folks,

Nice to see some familiar faces. I've caught up and agree with those comments. My last effort was 2012 and my youngest who was born shortly after I landed back is now 4!!

Have booked the time off work, and just waiting for a couple of things to drop into place before booking hotel and flights. My low number got reallocated last year so will have a new one!!

The draw of the race has me again and have some unfinished business with the uprun after food poisoning first time round. Number 3 for me.

Looking forward to sharing the journey with you all


PS Well done RR and Becca (other half ran with friends in just over 20hours). Very impressed with the organisation.

Just popping in folks to wish you all the best of luck for tomorrow. Enjoy, and run well. I'm looking forward to reading all the reports already.

Happy birthday SD!

RB- I'm in Manchester as MrsO is running. Will have the youngest in tow and staying with friends. Maybe catch up at the end if you are still about. Have followed your various bits on FB.

Nice to see everyone is nearly there.

Less than 40mpw av this year which has been a struggle in itself. This is supplemented with nearly 900 commuting bike miles. Mostly ploddy with a couple of notional mp runs in there.

I've said to TR our usual 6.3x may be a bit ambitious this year as after all the review of big miles, a quick analysis on fetch shows only 8 10-15m runs and 3 x20. Not that worried tbh so may join PP and run round with him for as long as possible. Crab did run 2.59 off 13mpw a few years back so will draw some strength from that.

I'll catch up with most of you in GFA or at the Pub for a few beers.

Taper well.
