Sharing my cycling experiences after many years of sharing my running experiences. A view from the back of the pack.
Wow, that looks like a tough one! That should get your legs ready for just about anything. Beautiful scenery, too. Good luck & enjoy it!
Hi! Looking forward to reading more of you! That elevation/climb just looks painful. Wow!
Wow, that looks beautiful...and sounds HARD! Yeah, that's a long way to go for a shorter race, but I find myself doing that kind of thing all the time. I think it secretly drives my husband crazy. Good luck!!I'm doing a 10-hour orienteering race this weekend...which is a 3.5 hour drive away. So I'll be doing some serious traveling like you!
Love the scenery but the elevation looks scary! Enjoy!!
Love the elevation profile!
My coach is travelling over 2000km for a 10km race in a few weeks so 300km for a 15km race seems perfectly reasonable. Good luck this weekend.
Looks like another great race. You guys sure have some great ones. No racing for me. Just a measly 8 mile training run but I'll be running marathon #4 next weekend.
Wow! That is one tough looking hill! Funny, my daughter and I were telling the person we stayed with last weekend about some of the long distances we drove for a 5K! Twice! But we laughed and smiled over it, not for the first time, so we made some pretty special memories doing it. (And in both of the races I drove for we won prizes including age group awards.)
I love the hill in the middle, it will be worth the travel! Enjoy!
That course profile is ridiculous! It looks like a tough race - good luck and enjoy it!
Your elevation profiles always amaze me! GOod luck this weekend. Looks/sounds like another awesome adventure.
When you put it like that, it sounds daft to drive 300km to run 15km. Alan has also been wanting to do this race for years. Finally, it doesn't conflict with the Fish River Canoe marathon this year so we will see you there. (I am not as well trained as you are and I am scared). Travel safe.
I think that destination races are soooo much fun. It's all about the journey!!!Looks like a great training race :)
I have never heard about such tough 15km race. Anyway I'd drive 300 for that 15km race ... considering the fantastic scenery that I could enjoy.
wow, what a climb! Have fun, I know you will!! :)
Now there's some serious elevation! Good luck and enjoy!
Wow! I'm looking forward to the race report!
