  • Thanks Lowrez,  I knew there had to be a sensible explanation.

    Just putting my order in for top quality counterfeit bank notes seren, absolute bargain!
  • Has anyone seen the 2019 thread lately?  It seems to be AWOL.
  • You're right, Becca; it seems to have disappeared. No idea why. Very strange. Meanwhile, I'm trying to decide whether to enter SDW100 2019 - which would mean definitely NOT running Comrades next year. I rather want to try Lakeland 100 in 2020, and think I need to complete a few slightly easier 100-mile races first - and SDW100 would be relatively easy to recce... Decisions, decisions...
  • My sense is that longer off-road ultras are more your forte, although this will delay you getting your Green Number.  ;)  
  • Oh dear. It's definitely gone awol :'(
  • you can't delete a thread can you?

  • It seems it's gone and we're missing a friend too.
  • Lowrez has overloaded the Forum!?!   I haven't been on for a while during hols but was curious why suddenly I had received emails for the 2018 thread

  • Becca: lowrez has disappeared?

    Re SDW100/Comrades Green Number. I'd rather like to work towards the Green number Club. My husband (who is generally very supportive of my ultrarunning, thankfully) can't really see the attraction of my running it at least another 9 times (8 more to reach green, then I would need to run it wearing the green number at least once). I do generally much prefer trail to road - Comrades is the only road ultra I've ever been interested in running - but Comrades is special...

    I couldn’t find the 2019 threat either.

    I suppose we ought to give it a bit of time to re-appear before starting a new one...
  • Of course, some people don't let Comrades get in the way of running stupidly long trail ultras...
  • Becca: yes, but without access to a time machine, 100 miles starting on Saturday 8th in UK does rather prevent running Comrades starting at 5am in South Africa on the 9th...
  • Ah, that’s unfortunate and not even our absent friend would cut it so finely.  Yikes you would have to miss parkrun too. 
  • Even my private message with Lowrez have disappeared!  What has he done???
  • Lowrez says that his account has been removed without explanation. He has some theories as to why but I won’t repeat them here in case I get “disappeared” too...
  • Think we shall have to set up camp here for a while and see what happens.....
  • This is more intriguing than an episode of the X-Files. I didn't have lowrez down as a master criminal. Hopefully he will be back with us shortly.  Debra, difficult decision but whichever way you go you'll have a great time! 
  • Bring back Lowrez and our Comrades 2019 thread!!  i shall try contacting Runners World / Hearst magazines using the email address under the "contact" option, to ask for an explanation!
  • Mc Hilly: is that the one under 'Editorial Complaints Policy'? Or is there another one?

  • Debra, I didn’t use the complaints system as this seemed to be for complaining about content that is there; there were 3 email addresses [email protected], [email protected] and [email protected] so I emailed them all to say that our forum thread (and friends account) appears to have been accidentally deleted and asked them to reinstate it..... I wait to see if I get any reply!
  • Hi Mc Hilly. You did better than me in finding email addresses! I'll wait and see - if you don't get a reply in a couple of days I will try...
  • Here you all are! Very mysterious.
    i survived the OCC last week - fantastic week in the mountains. And one of the benefits will be that it’ll make Comrades seem relatively flat...
  • And my hamster picture has disappeared :-(
  • RR - well done on last week. Lowrez did post a picture of you crossing the finish line. Sounds like an amazing race. P.S. your hamster picture is back. I find peoples avatars come and go without any explanation.

    Come on RW Towers. Where's our thread?
  • RR: very well done on last week! 3,500m ascent in 55 km!!! Wow.
  • Well the hamster is back at least. I posted my congratulations on the other thread, RR, but well done again. 

    I take it that  everyone has seen that entries open on Friday 19 October. 
  • Becca: no, hadn't seen that.Where did you see it? I can't find anything on the Comrades website.
  • ComradesMarathon on Facebook.  I've tagged you.
