A finishers certificate for the Mont-Aux-Sources 50km challenge I ran in September. It was accompanied by a letter to thank me for running and donating to the Conservation Trust. Another great gesture from a great event.
2.) Comrades Marathon entries stand at 10811 this morning. Entries close on 30 November and will be capped at 18000. I’m not sure they’ll get 18000 this year but we’ll see. It’s still crazy...already nearly 11000 runners aiming to run 90km (55.8 miles) next May. I’ll start posting more about Comrades soon.
3.) Staying with the Comrades; it was announced yesterday that this year’s Comrades made a Guinness World Record for the ultra marathon with the most finishers. This year 14343 runners finished the 90km race within the 12 hour cutoff time.
