Belated Happy New Year everyone.
So it's Scottsville for the finish - I'll have to swot up on the different route to the finish before the bus tour... I've only done the Scotsville finish once, in 2000, (it was also the finish in 2002 but I didn't enter that year...) and I don't remember much about it to be honest... I did think it lacked the intense atmosphere of a stadium finish, as the stands seemed far away and only on one side, but may be temporary stands will be erected to ensure we get a good finish...
I see that it's sorting out your flights time now - I need to get mine sorted during these airline sales too.
Just back from a 100km race across Hong Kong - not much use as Comrades training as it was on trails/steps, carrying a backpack with checkpoints around 10km apart, other than it was very hilly and I did spend plenty of time on my feet, 24 hours 45 mins!
