The Sani Pass is a gravel road and people are advised to only travel it with 4x4 or other off-road vehicles. The marathon literally runs up to the top of the pass and back down again, an uphill half marathon followed by a downhill half marathon. The start/finish is at the Underberg golf course.
With the Mont-Aux-Sources 50km Challenge in September and the Sani Stagger in November I now have my main goals for the rest of the year sorted out. Both races are entered and paid for so there is no excuse or turning back.
I love these main goals. They give me purpose for the long term and helps with motivation when I’m not running other races. I’ll be doing other races still this year, about 10, but they will be part of my training for the main goals. That’s why I’ve added two countdown clocks to my sidebar...one for the next race and one for the next goal…all part of me psyching up myself.
So it’s training time! Saturday will be a short run with a LSD trail run of 28.5km (17.7 miles) on Sunday. I’m really looking forward to Sunday’s run on my favorite trails in my favorite nature reserve.
Have a lovely running weekend everyone!
