Ha ok so spot the new guy worrying about clubs as an international runner and trying to qualify with an IM Marathon.  Cheers for the steer ladies and gents, I will find a proper race to qualify with and won't worry so much about clubs etc.  Do you know when entries open for the 2017 race?

Good Afternoon

Just a quick hello actually.  I have decided to give Comrades 2017 a go, probably alone but potentially with a small team from work.  I was looking to do the 2016 event but missed the deadline as it was a bit of a late decision so here we are with 2017 approaching.  

Two quick questions.  Ref Qualification races I am looking to use the marathon section of an Ironman as the qualifier, has anyone else done this previously and are they generally ok with it?  If not then happy to go and run something else to achieve the end state.

Second.  They seem to put a lot of emphasis on a club, through my job I move a lot and don't really have a local club, is this likely to be any kind of issue?  How has anyone else addressed this?

Any advice more than welcome, not my first Ultra by a long way but certainly my first Comrades so that little nugget of information that would be really really helpful at about 60K in would be great to know now!!!

Looking forward to seeing everyone, does anyone fancy doing dinner in town the night before as a bit of a pirate get together?  Would be nice to put faces to names before all that highly unfashionable huffing and puffing round Nottingham?
