Comrades and a weekend full of racing



If you are planning to do Comrades next year and haven’t entered, best you do so right now!! Entries close tomorrow, Tuesday 30th Movember at close of business, or if they reach 18,000 entries. As of a few hours ago, entries were at 17,005.


Congratulations to everyone who took part in the RAC “Easy” One, yesterday under some really tough conditions, judging from some of the comments received after the race.


“Was hardly an EASY one! Enjoyed it but was rather tough!”

“Hills, what hills, I love hills!”

 “Nothing “easy” about yesterday in that heat !!”

“Not sure I want this up on the website – very disappointing time”

“Worst time on that route.”


Never the less, there were still some memorable moments, Brian completing his 10th Easy One, Kerry-Lynn completing her 1st 32km race (nice one to pick), Leigh braving the pain of a broken bone to help Kerri-Lynn, Meg and Izelle blistering through the course…. Here are the results that were submitted (please let me know if I missed your result)
