Track your Comrade!


Hi, only 2 sleeps to go (remember you don’t count the last night) and judging from the weather this morning, the timing of the arrival of the cold weather is perfect – there’s no need for you to be out and running in this 2 degree weather. Talking about the weather, it looks like the forcast for race day is really favourable. In Durban at the start, the temp is looking to be about 15 degrees and as you move towards Maritzburg it should warm up slightly (but not too much). It will be sunny with some cloud cover.  As you reach the finish, the temperature will drop and it is likely to get cold fairly quickly (Maritzburg temp is similar to Joburg), so make sure you have warm clothes to get into at the finish.

For those of you who would like to support Evan McLean, who is running as the Sports Trust COACH mascot, please donate on the Back-a-Buddy website by clicking here. This is a worthy cause and can you imagine how talented you must be to run 87 km looking like this – and to do it in a Silver time of sub 7:30. Incidently, Evan has just run his 100th Marathon (or more) and something incredible like 90 of these have been at sub 3 hour pace… And he has run 10 Comrades Silvers too. Please support Evan.

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 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.
  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)

As you can see, there are quite some good times the last time the up was run. It will also appear that G-batch is without a captain this year…
 
Good luck everyone!!

  1. Hi all you fit and healthy Comrades!

    I just wanted to wish you all the best for a fantastic day on Sunday. I hope you all have a great run and that you enjoy the race, the people and the sense of achievement when you cross that line. A little part of me is jealous that I am not going to be with you but I am with you in spirit!!
