Track the Bombers


Only 17 sleeps to go (remember the last night doesn’t count). By now, you should be well into your taper. I know Denton is (he has cut back on the saftey blanket runs).  Don’t worry if you are starting to feel injured, sick, or having bad runs – this is a common feeling for the taper. Terry, Robyn, Izelle, you have all done the training – don’t try to ‘catch up’ runs now! 

Last Sunday, Mandy picked up a flyer on for RAC runners pre-comrades prep. Have a look here.

Lauren sent in an interesting article on what is required to run a Silver – have a read on the Comrades 2010 page.

Here is a list of the Bombers that are running Comrades:

 You can track runners in one of two 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. Thanks to Gill for letting us know about this.
  2. SMS the race number to 38132 and you will recieve 5 messages throughout the day, tracking the runners progress. This costs R10.00 per runner (one race number per SMS)

Enjoy the rest of the training, and if anyone sees Norah running – please stop her – its too early to start again after breaking her foot.

  1. Having a look at the list above, I noticed that the ‘traditional’ G-Batch is looking a bit depleted. If fact, I see some of the Ringleaders hiding up front in D-Batch. Hopefully a good sign of things to come.

  2. Thanks for all this information Iano and for the friendly reminders about how long to go. For the record, I count the last night – i need the extra time:). I hope everybody is well and getting ready to go…
