Comrades 2012

Hi Folks....any marathon time that is posted online by the organisers will do for qualifying. If you can get below 4 hours 20 will be in front of the green number runners (have completed 10+ runners), which will knock 10 mins or so off your time, as it is much faster to get across the start line

 I am the lucky boy who is your UK ambassador for Comrades. Let me know if you have any queries

Happy training

Hi Gallo44. Have you seen that you can become a gold member for this race (on the English Marathon website) for £99. You then get free race entry for life, your own gold runing number every year (you choose between 1 & 250), a gold medal every year etc, etc.. Looks good value& I have done it

MS7 & St Domingo. I'm doing the Liverpool Marathon too. Have you seen the Facebook Liverpool 2011 Preparations group. It is excellent

This race had it all. Rain, wind & sun....just missing last year's and blasting :0) The marshals were great & stayed in place even when it was peeing down. Bottled water & medal were fantastic. Many thanks

Hi Folks. Have done this one a few times. Very good for PBs & the sandblasting last year seemed to spur a lot of us on to good times :0) You have the sea on your right on the way out & mainly down roads on the way back. Great for marathon season prep too

Well done on 19th place Robert (StDomingo). That is impressive. Just need to improve by 8 mins & 7 secs now to win it :0) Some of us were 7 mins+ slower than for other 10Ks

Hi Mark. Great event with some surprising up & down bits :0) love the over sized medal too. Suspect a few of us went home with our timing chips still on our shoes. Do you need them back & if so....what address do you need them sent to. Many thanks . David

Well done to the organisers & marshalls at this event. Plenty of water on the way around and 22 secs under 2 hours. Bet other people thought why are those folks walking through the water....I'l just run past them....and starting walking with then after about 6 steps. Felt really good running after the wadding. The harder ridged sand dunes bits were a little hard on the toes....but....what a great race and even showers in a cubicle afterwards...class :0). PS Yep...that guy with the fishing net was at the start & the finish...with a running number on
