You can get tickets into the internationals area in the stadium, which is right by the finish.  You can also buy tickets at the expo for the bus from and back to Durban, if you need transport.

I would not be brave enough to try and make my own way to points on the course, but I expect it's possible.

Nothing on the website about tracking runners (as far as I can see), but there has been tracking in previous years, so I assume there will be this year.

I'd forgotten how funny this forum can be,

Then I was reminded how bitchy it can be, and how crappy it usually is.

Are RW ever going to fix the software problems?  I guess not.

Why would anyone want to enter the venue more than 24 hours before the event?

What if you are old, poor AND a fat smoker?

"Mmmm difficult one. On the surface of it fat people eat too much but we all know it's much more complex than that."


This is true - in SOME cases.  However, plenty of people just simply eat too much because it's nice!  I used to eat pretty healty food, just too much of it  - and I weighed thirteen stone.

I stopped eating so much, started exercising, and lost more than three stone.  Not everyone who is fat has a mental health issue.  

Tasty food is nice, it's very easy to eat more calories than you need (even without take-aways, crisps, etc.) and it takes self-discipline to lose weight.  This is why many people just get fat and do nothing about it.

To reward that with a parking space close to the supermarket is madness.

I haven't run since March, when I had a stroke (after a run, natch!)

I haven't tried it yet - I'm still getting to grips with walking - but soon, real soon 

I'm not kidding myself that I'll just go back into it as if nothing had happened though, I think it's going to be tough

Gove's point is that every teacher must be able to perfectly impart knowledge to their pupils, and we will not tolerate mere satisfactory teaching.

Also, all pupils must be above average in the English and Maths assessments. Otherwise the teachers should be penalised.

He has a point: there are no mere satisfactory politicians. NO. They are all ****.


Bear beat me to it, but everyone cannot be above average!

Brussel sprout dipped in milk chocolate. Wrap in the Ferraro foil. Given out to the local kids on Hallowens - now that is what I call a class action.

I will have to try that in October

You're obviously just a jealous, petty, prejudiced little **** of a man, with a tiny penis. Just like everyone else on all internet forums.

Not necessarily. Despite being only 5ft 5" tall, my grandfather in the thumb nail picture was half Afro-Caribbean. Anatomically speaking I have a lot to thank him for.

Big guys; over 6 feet tall, find my confidence somewhat unsettling.

You inherited his big ears?
