General Information

The general consensus is that your normal Comrades training is the most important preparation and the Comrades itself is a vital training run for a 100 Miler (although not essential).

On the grounds of weather conditions for the Washie 100 Miler you should include protective gear such as cold weather clothing, waterproofs, goggles, gloves, balaclava, lip-ice, etc., and bring several towels and fresh T-shirts to change into. A source of warm drinks is also advisable.

Registration will be at the start (Halyards Hotel in the Port Alfred Marina) from 13H00 onwards. All runners AND seconds are expected to report for the briefing at the start at 16h00 on Friday 22nd of July 2016.

It is strongly advised that one or more of the seconds are athletic enough to accompany their runner on the road. Runner, seconds and vehicle need to be made as visible as possible for the duration of the event.
