>Racing>Comrades Ultramarathon 2013 - Up Run
Hi all - just pinging around to see if there are others here who plan to run the Comrades marathon on June 2nd this year. Would be nice to link up and discuss training and other such nice stuff and of course, have south african beer when we get there. Do write back and lets connect.
This is my first attempt at the Comrades (hopefully i can get to the start line in one uninjured piece). I am just looking to experience what i am told is a unique and completely different race atmosphere compared to usual mass road marathons so just finishing within the cutoff is a good enough target for me (<12 hours). Am hoping to run my qualifier at the Tokyo Marathon next month.
For people who are curious, the race is an Up run (direction alternates every year) - in South Africa, from Durban to Pietermaritzburg, 87kms approx and is the world's oldest and largest ultramarathon. The official website is here. Race is on June 2nd, 2013.
I dont sweat. I ooze liquid awesome.
