I usually arrive Thursday and leave Tuesday... that works for me, traveling alone, just in SA for Comrades...

The bus back after the Up run is probably my least favourite part of the Comrades experience... The queueing to get onto the bus, the age it takes for the buses to get out of the car park, the interminably long journey back to Durban... as Stephen says, best bet is to have a few beers and try to sleep on the journey back...

Fido, I think officially they are meant to go to the back of Garden Court Hotel (where the pick ups are for the Down run) but depending on the bus driver and number of requests, it tends to make unofficial stops at some hotels on the way back...

Came from the Comrades Marathon - actually, the username is the same as it was for last year - so I guess it's just a reminder e-mail... if you use your username and password from last year it looks like it should be fine...

Yep, got the e-mail. I think it's genuine as the password is definitely one that I set up... even though I found it in my junk mail folder...

Will be good to see you again JB!

Dannirr - that looks fabulous. Need to find 11 other party dudes!

I may bump into you at Tokyo if I'm successful in the ballot (about 10% chance...)

Becca7 - hahahaha - fell asleep at the keyboard shortly after my last post! Now I'm wide awake at some unearthly hour - funny what walk/running for nearly 30 hours does to you!

Stephen - good luck on the Lakeland 100 - I've heard that it's a particularly tough one...

Stephen - that's horrible! I hope Comrades can sort something out for you.

Jwheezy, I found patch left behind in "our area" in the international section which nobody wanted to claim. It must be yours (well, it is now) - happy to post it to you.

I can get mine by going to the Comrades website, then race info, 2014 results, call up you results, click on your name to get your splits, then the view videos link in the top right hand corner...
