Track your Comrade 2013!


Hi, only 6 sleeps to go (remember you don’t count the last night!!).

It looks like the weather forcast for race day is gonna be favourable and in the 20’s for most of the day and including the start:

  • In Durban at the start it is looking to be over 20 degrees with a moderate breeze from yout right.
  • In Maritzburg at the finish, the temp is likely to be in the mid 20 degrees, with a possibility of some cloud cover. Keep a check on your own temp as you can easily overheat in the Harrison Flats in the early afternoon – use water on your head (look for the misty coloured water saches – which will be ice cold!).

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.

  1. Comrades Runner Tracker. Select the correct race year (2013) and choose Runner Tracker. 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
Denton, we have a problem with the Leadership here!! It will appear AGAIN that G-batch is without a Captain. The last time there was a proper Captain, was in 2010 and I thought we were a social runing group 🙂

Here is a map of the finish – it does make the course a bit shorter, something I know Mark would like (remember to run the tangents and save some 500m or so…).

Good luck everyone!!
 
See you on the road.

  1. Denton, that’s my point!! Even you need to be expelled from G Batch – what is that E doing on your race number?? Maybe it describes your running style – Efficient 😜

  2. Thanks Iano! Just to let you know that G batch is back. Fat and fighting fit! We are going to give Comrades everything we have got this year. Wishing everyone a fantastic Comrades 2013. We are clearly going to have to expel quite a few people on this years list from G batch. They simply run too fast!
