We hear from Alison (& Chris) Taylor-Reed, who have both finished the Comrades Marathon…
We both did it and are now Comrades! It is a gun-to-gun race and it took us about 8 minutes to cross the line.
Chris got a Bronze medal – 10.55.07 link to video
I got a Vic Clapham medal – 11.48.37 link to video
For those who have not heard of it – Comrades dates back to 1921 and is a hot & hilly mass road race which is run between Pietermaritzburg & Durban (the direction is normally reversed each year) – think a much, much harder version of the London Marathon! Check out the Comrades website to find out more.
