Track your Comrade 2012!


Hi, only 3 sleeps to go (remember you don’t count the last night).

It looks like the weather forcast for race day is really favourable. In Maritzburg at the start, the temp is looking to be about 8 degrees so make sure that you dress warmly at the start. I like to run in a long-sleeved T-shirt over my race kit and then a short-sleeved T-shirt over that. I can then discard layers as it warms up (don’t discard at the top of Polly Shortts as it is quite cold in the dip of Little Pollys).  As you move towards Durban it should warm up nicely to around 20 degrees at 2pm, with some cloud cover. It has rained over the last week in Durban, so be prepared at the finish.  

So on to who is running Comrades this year (if I have missed anyone, I sincerely apologise – let me know and I’ll add them).

You can track runners in one of 3 ways:

  1. Online via the Comrades Website. Here you can enter up to 10 numbers and you can then watch their progress throughout the day.
  2. SMS the race number to 38132 and you will receive 5 messages throughout the day, tracking the runners progress. This costs R10.00 per runner (one race number per SMS)
  3. Online Video Streaming. You can watch the race live on the Web by logging onto the race website
As you can see, there are quite some good times the last time the down was run. It will also appear that G-batch is without a captain YET AGAIN this year…
