Possum hopper, further to your query to RR in the Comrades 2014 thread: Croydon 30 new route (started last year) includes some trail through woods early on, so less on the country roads. It's a pleasant, small, low-key race, with quite a choice of nibbles at (approx) 7.5, 15 and 22.5 miles. 2012 (when I ran it) it varied between heavy rain and light rain, but was warm (about 18 C); last year (when I staffed the 22.5 mile checkpoint) it was hot and sunny.
bra - i was just concerned about reading maps as i do need glasses and can't be bothered to wear / carry them when running. Thanks for your help.
