  • Congrats Debra! Amazing achievement! Really enjoyed my run around Windermere today, felt comfortable all the way around, so a nice confidence boost. Time to taper now. Was great to see Peter R and a few other Comrades runners along the route

  • Thomas, it’s good to have some days off! Looks as if apart from 2 days immediately after London you’ve run every day (and at a pace most of us couldn’t dream of!). I’m no expert, but I would think you need a proper rest and recovery after London, so…

  • Nice medal Lowrez, if RR sponsor it, do they offer a car as a prize?

  • Terry, you can certainly have my guest wristband! Hope the quad recovers soon and the parkrun training goes well!

  • The grandstand view was awesome, Danni please pass on my thanks for the ticket! Seeing all the kids races and the elites was amazing, and the masses inspirational, I did manage to spot Lowrez, and severa others, but also missed many (including a 3 p…
  • Thanks Lowrez for organising this evening, was great to meet up with everyone. Hope all who are running tomorrow have an amazing time, I’ll be enjoying watching and supporting you all when you’re in the final 100m !
  • Could those running London share their race numbers? I’m looking forward to a day spectating and tracking! Hope to be a Cutty Sark and mile 22.7
  • Hi Mac3, thanks for organising, sounds a great plan Lingela, Friday 7th June @ 18:30 Mac3 + 1 becca7 McHilly
  • Mordo, sorry to hear you’ve been injured but hope recovery goes well, there is still plenty of time before Comrades. Debra great to hear that you’re starting to feel strong again, and good runs from Kite beast and Becca!  Ss not long now to your 10 …
  • Hi MM2,, yes that was me before the start, it was great to see a couple of Comrades caps! Fantastic to hear about your podium place, congrats! My run didn’t feel so great, I decided to take it easy and just treat it as a long slow run, was a bit sur…
  • Lowrez, we want you there ! And the charities must really appreciate all the work you do, so please give in, get on with the training and find an awesome outfit to wear for the occasion ( and I doubt any club would find you a pain, people who pay th…
  • Debra that’s Awesome, I cant image running 100 miles, Comrades is more than enough for me! Completed Brescia marathon today in 4h25 which moves me up one pen, but was a reminder that I need to do a lot more long runs as marathon distance isn’t curre…
  • Lowrez, it’s not that different from some European countries eg Italy, where you need either a competition licence from your home federation or alternatively some (expensive) medical cert and ecg! Luckily I had the EA affiliation, but you had sugges…
  • Lowrez, the above is a cut and paste, written by David Ross (uk Comrades ambassador) on the Facebook page..... looks like you don’t need to be a club member.... just a letter from EA saying they don’t object!
  • Hi Comrades, by now you should all have received an email from the CMA asking you for a clearance letter from your National Athletics body. This will give you a clearer explanation from Grant Matkovich of what you need to do, it's pretty quick so do…
  • Hi RR, it was me chatting with you friend yesterday, she used you’re real name when asking if I knew you, so it took a moment to click! I also saw Mr K out supporting on the course, another friend from Comrades running, and several people who I have…
  • Mac3, last year's meet up was great, and I'd definately be interested in it again. Has anyone ever ran Brescia marathon in Italy? I've now signed up for it on 10th March, simply because I thought it would be good to do a marathon in Mar/April as a …
  • Thanks for all the advice re medical forms for marathons..... also I discovered sports tours international had some good info on their site ( not that I’m planning to go with them for this) sounds like I should be fine with England Athletics licence…
  • Does anyone have any experience of running marathons in Italy? There is one that I’m thinking of doing, but a standard thing seems to be needing to get a doctor to sign a health form.... I recall many years ago getting a doc to sign one, they were v…
  • Lowrez, as there is more than 6 of us, they will add on 12pc to the bill and won’t expect us to pay any additional tip. The number of people present won’t have any impact it will be 12pc if whatever the bill is. It is optional so if the service is p…
  • Hi hi Lowrez, would love to join for a meal on 27th if there is a space.... I’m didn’t get a place so not running but plan to be there on 28th to spectate! ( I get back from my holls on 27th, was debating if I go home on 27th and back into London to…
  • Hi Rodeoflip and Gary, welcome to the thread! I don't think there is a correct answer to which is easiest, up or down? Neither is easy! And both have lots of up and down! The challenges are slightly different on each ( laws of physics say up must be…
  • Re Visas, what fun did you have getting your Chinese visa Lowrez, I remember a while ago you alluding to something, but deciding not to say until after the trip! last year when entering SA as normal at passport control I got asked “reason for visit?…
  • Hi Lowrez, re flights, I’ve not got my details to hand, but have a feeling I’m on a later departure time going out, but probably on the same return flight
  • I haven’t checked in for a little while, so great to catch up on everyone’s recent news. Dannir, the OCC sounds awesome I expect the scenery will be spectacular. Debra, does the parkrun band not work as and ICE band? MM2 great article and an amazing…
  • Congrats Lowrez, great qualifier! All this talk of multiple marathons is impressive, not sure I can imagine doing 10 in 10, but who knows, maybe one day. My current challenge is to run every day in January, not bothered about distance or pace, just …
  • Hoping that 2019 brings everyone injury free running. Good luck in China Lowrez, allow yourself plenty of time for everything (my experience in China was that everything seemed to take longer than I expected) and have fun, although I think your Cadb…
  • Wow - 20 minutes to full, that was quick...… For anyone who didn't make it, don't panic! past experience is that it's always been possible to get transfer places nearer the time
