I might have an o.k. marathon time but I am in awe of you lot having done Comrades. Whilst I have a few ultras under my belt, they were only 30 miles and I always said "No more!". How many of us runners say stuff like that to only then go back on what we had said at the end of a tough run.
I would be happy to get through the 56 miles under 12 hours........that'll do me very nicely. I tried to access the results for this year just to get an idea of what 'times 'normal' people get....I count myself as normal as not uber fast, but could not get on to it.
O.K..stupid question number 2 and onwards - on an 'up' year, where does the run start ?
Do you get bussed back to the beginning....pre supposing you make it !!
I have read that there are 'pacer' buses that go alongside you. Is that right ?
At the water / fuel stops, what is provided and what is 'normal' to take on board for a run like this ??
Thanks guys....you were warned.
