Comrades Marathon, South Africa, May 31, 2015

posted Jun 20, 2015, 5:27 AM by Gay Renouf
Eight Saskatchewan runners traveled to South Africa to do the renowned Comrades run - Durban to Pietermaritzburg - 87.8 km of hills.  This year was the up-year.

Rick Minett, 9:29:25, 18th M60
Gay Renouf, 9:42:36, 20th W50
Robert Neufeld, 11:41:19
Jennifer Ruland, 11:47:41, 953rd W Open
Jennifer Evancio, 11:57:15, 980th W40

The race is subject to very restrictive cut-off times.  This year, many pace bunnies (in Comrades parlance, "buses" didn't make those cut-offs.  Our Regina runners were caught by these as well.  These guys were the bravest of the group: Debbie running after missing 8 weeks of training to injury; Sean running with kidney stones and blood loss; and Mike with knee issues:

Debra Bellamy, 69 km
Sean Reidy, 58 km
Mike Renouf, 50 km
