Max - I don't know if this is what you are after but I did see this pacing chart which gives you times at specific distances on the route: www.alsoranrunners.info/UPpacingcharts.htm
Thanks Peter, that's useful in itself. What I got last year was more basic. It was literally eg - Flat: average 8:45 min/mile pace, Downhill: average 8:20 pace, Uphill averade 9:40 pace. Then by some sort of maths magic the relative %ages of the race that were flat/up/down added up to a finishing time of approx 8 hr 55.
Here's what I had collected some time ago on travel - off to look at my specific departure times McH - are we on the same plane I wonder?

McH - It looks like my flight is leaving at 22:30 from T3 - VS461 - I hope you can see that? I seem to be rather good at choosing flights that cave-in on me, this now arrives at 10:25 on Friday, an hour and a half after my connecting flight to Durban has left Joburg! Absolutely splendid!
Thanks for asking the above question - whilst my paperwork tells me to check my flights 72 hours prior to departure and that they are not responsible for anything at all, I suspect this flight never was scheduled for an 18:30 departure and I have been enticed to purchase the lovely looking combination simply to have my cash extracted from me. How do I keep landing myself in these conundrums? Off I go to make some phone calls!
Ha ha - at least I know where my passport is just checked the rest of the trip and it hangs together OK, talked to World Airfares and I should be sorted by tomorrow - I wonder how though - got a feeling I am gong to miss the meal again.
Terry I recall you said there was a pretty nice airport lounge at Joburg - not too expensive?
