I sent a letter of appeal with my entry (as per Mr. Johnston's request) detailing what I've gone through so far to try and enter the race. I won't bore you with the details, suffice to say it was a bit of an email battle to get in but it paid off!! The website is Comrades Marathon. There's also the Wikipedia entry which covers some of the history and has the winning times for every race since its inception in 1921. An article from Runners World is a good account of one of their writers who did an 'up' year. This year is a 'down' year from Pietermaritzburg to Durban.
Crap I guess I gotta get off the couch pretty soon.
