|How important is...
|Let me start a new one:
How important is the goody bag? or T-shirt?
Heard so many people complain the last few days.
|Spar Ladies' 10 km - 30 Aug (GN)
|went to watch and support family...
what a sight this is, with 26,000 people taking part
The 10k was the smaller field, with maybe 6,000 or so runners. They had a separate route this year to the 5k walkers, and from all accounts it was a nice flat fast well organised race (although no coke).
Many fast ladies were present, and about 12 went sub-40
There were 20,000 5k walkers, and many took 2hrs to complete, but what the heck - for just R50 they got great entertainment, nice goodie bag, pushe ...

|Is anyone planning to enter tonight / tomorrow?

|Jannas 18- & 9-hour Relay Marathon
|Ran this race with my school team, 2003 about. We did almost 300km's. And now its time to go back. Really want to see the fun side of it. Those days we all ran our hearts out. I remember my furthest at that stage was a 12k, and through that night I ran 31km with only 2 over 4min.
Slept from getting into the car after the race until midday that sunday.
But memories were made, and all the running mates still talk about Jannas.
|Who's been training
|Good session there Gavin. 8 x 1km is tough going.
So it was my Dad's time to go in the early hours of this morning. It's been hard to say goodbye but at least he is at peace now and his suffering is over.
Went and ran 15km this evening and raised my hands to the sky to say goodbye to him.
|Hamstring injury - best way to recover?
I have a left hamstring strain, probably grade 1 strain - nothing serious (well, serious enough I need to stop running until its healed). Injury happened at this years Tyger 21km, about 16km into the race. Was more an ache in my hamstring, so thought legs were just tired.
Anyways, have never rested since and 2 weeks ago it started getting sore after every run. Reading up as much about it as possible, only real way to fix it is rest (no running until its healed). I hope 2 weeks wi ...
|Why are running forums so dead?
|I've only ever been on this forum so I don't know what to compare it to.
Husky is right. The forum gets busier between Jan and June, but I think it's relatively "active" all year round with a few of people visiting and posting daily.
