We are taking on the ultimate running challenge – to run the 90km Comrades distance EACH day consecutively – for the 9 days leading up to the epic ultra marathon – then culminating in the official Comrades Marathon on 10 June 20018. So… Running ten Comrades Marathons in 10 days! Ouch!
Just think – that’s a green number in 10 days!
South Africans have a special place for those intrepid souls that, as winter starts to set in begin the epic journey that is the Comrades Marathon. The 92nd running of an event, conceived to honor the millions of fallen soldiers who died tragically during the World War 1, is set to start 10 June 2018.
The 90km run, the start and end, alternating between Durban and Pietermaritzburg is central to the South African running scene. Each half of which would be considered as amongst the toughest 42.2km standard marathon in SA.
