Your June 2015 Mileage
Are we all back on the road after Comrades?

Personally, I am very unhappy with not even making 200km for the month. Ended up with 192km.

Time and real life is just not allowing me to up the mileage to where I would like it to be, which is in the 250km to 300km per month range!
We are on our way to summer
I can see the sun is rising earlier every morning ...

Come on summer ...
Vic falls marathon
So I am back in the country and will start the report from the trip up to the falls.

Friday at 12 we left, easy over the borders and had a nice drive up to Francis town(Bots). Camping was amazing.

Saterday morning we struggled to get into Zim. Back and forth with papers to stamp and fees to pay. Not a cheap country to enter. Then the drive started. We had to make Vic falls before 17:00 for registration. "Police" pulled us over every 20km. And by stop numer 14 260km from the falls ...

Run & Walk for Bibles - 27 June 2015 (GN)
Due to another arrangement, I ended up only doing the 10km event here.

Good, secure parking on the school field for R 10.00 was worth it. Far better than paying dodgy car guards to park on the street and getting out was a breeze.

No problems with entries. The wind was blowing, which caused a wind-chill factor and made it quite cold at the start. I ran in long sleeves, which is relatively rare for me.

The route is a fast one, except for the final kilometre when they take you up that awfu ...

Orlando CANSA 10 km - 21 June 2015 (CGA)
Drove through to do this race this morning.

The first impressions weren't good, as it took 20 minutes to enter, despite there not being a lot of people waiting. The problem seemed to be the insistance of the organisers that everyone complete an entry form and the fact that people were trying to pay with R100 notes for the R80 entry fee and they'd run out of change! Frustrating to say the least.

There must have been about 500 runners lined up for the start and I was worried about the marsha ...
CAD 15km Trail Run
A rare trail run for me, as there were no road races in Pretoria today.

The race was well advertised, so I guess the turnout was disappointing for the organisers, with only about 100 people doing the 15km event.

The start time was a late 07h30, so I slept "late" and drove the 45km to the race with plenty of time to spare. Entries at just R60 is cheap for a trail run and was quick and easy. Parking was also no problem, although I was glad not to have a normal road car to ramp over ...

Looks pretty easy, though that descent is steep!
