Loved everything about this race. I thought it would be mentally and physically hard to do a 1 mile-ish loop over and over for 100 miles but it wasn’t. Plus having a loop ensured I wouldn’t get lost like I do on most ultras. The race had a warming tent for us, plenty of porto potties and real bathroom, can rent a tent or use your own and have right on course. can also park camper next to course. You were rarely alone on course.
They even had champagne/juice at midnight for runners. And they spoiled us with the food tent. Other distances to choose from too. Highly recommend and I will be back this year…was best way to spend new years! Loved the race shirt.

I went in blindly running this race…I only knew about the 12 hour cut off, that it was the oldest ultra in the world and one year it is uphill and the following is downhill. I recommending getting hill work in…which I didn’t and also ready the website and listening to Coach Parry’s podcast..he is the official coach for Comrades…and also read my review of everything I learned during the race instead of ahead of time. And let me know if you also want to run it in 2019…as I am heading back for the uphill!
