      Ultra: 89k in 10h05min (rounded up to nearest minute)  .... hard work...

        Good job- a very tough race by reputation.

         

        I have driven up and down some of the roads in that area as I grew up in what was then Rhodesia, RSA has some beautiful countryside and oceans, but that kind of scenery makes for tough running.

        PBs since age 60:  5k- 24:36, 10k - 47:17. Half Marathon- 1:42:41.

                                            10 miles (unofficial) 1:16:44.
