So there’s this ultra marathon in South Africa that has been going on for 93 years. It runs on rolling pavement hills between the cities of Durban and Pietermaritzburg...which is about 89km or 55-miles. Every other year the race changes direction so it is either a net uphill or net downhill (however since there are a lot of rolling hills there is a lot of “up and down” regardless!). This year is an “up year” with about 6500’ of climbing or 2000m. For the past several years over 20,000 runners have taken part each year. About 1 million spectators watch and 500,000 Rand of prize money goes to the winner. This race is called Comrades. I had the honor of taking part in this event in 2015 and was humbled by the course and the competition. Fellow American and 2:14 marathoner Max King and I ran the first mile in about 5:50 (3:37km pace) and found ourselves buried between 300-400th place! We hit the first marathon in 2:43 (about the halfway split!) and had already climbed about 3000’ (1000m) with a lead pack of 30+ other guys! I had a rough 2nd half and finished 15th as the top American (13th if you take out the guys who tested positive for PEDs at a drug test). This year I hope to run much faster and place a lot better! The camaraderie of the runners in this race is the best in the world. Guys in the lead pack competing for life changing prize money would graciously help their fellow competitors and encourage one another. The fans and spectators that line the course cheer with tremendous passion. It is simply an amazing race and life changing experience!
