Comrades Marathon

Comments Off on Comrades Marathon

Just noticed that my short article about the 89-km Comrades Marathon in South Africa is now posted on the Canadian Running website. I happened to be there this year while doing some reporting for another story, and I have to say it was a pretty inspirational experience. It almost, maybe, sort of made me think I’d like to try an ultra-race someday. Maybe.

If you’re interested, Matt Leduc, the pride of Ajax, Ont., blogged about his preparations and experiences for this year’s race. However, you’ll have to look ahead to 2012: the entry deadline for the 2011 race closed on Nov. 30.

Needless to say, Marathon Man had finished long before the 12-hour cut-off.
