Below, you’ll find some of the photos from Comrades. Eventually, I’m going to combine these photos, and videos from both myself and professional videographers to make one video of the entire event. But for now, here is a taste of what you can expect.
I haven’t even run the race yet, and I can already feel that Comrades is beyond any race I’ve ever experienced, or ever will again unless I return. If you have ever finished a marathon, 1/2 marathon, or even a 10k, then Comrades is truly the ultimate experience unrivaled by anything else in the World. Last year, over 14,200 runners finished the race from around the world, making Comrades Officially (According to the Guinness Book of World Records) “The Greatest Ultramarathon in the World.”
Just some quick notes from South Africa, Pre-Comrades Race:
* People walk the same way they drive – You enter on the left, and exit on the left.
* The volume knob on the radio is on the right, not the left
