THE RUN



This race is run largely in open country. It is relatively easy but there is Child's Hill to negotiate, between the 12- and 18-kilometre marks, which is quite a test of fitness. Once you are over this hill, at about 30 kilometres, you cross the highway and turn onto a sand road. This provides a welcome break from the visual monotony as you run through forest and farm areas. After the turn back onto the main Ladysmith Road you will find some testing pulls at about 45 kilometres. Here it is hot and hard but the end is near. The run into Ladysmith is easy and mainly downhill.

EDITORS NOTES



EDITORS NOTES

This race has been judged one of the best organised in KwaZulu-Natal on several occasions. For those looking for a soft Comrades qualifier, this must be your pick: you get an extra 30 minutes to run just two kilometres at the end of the race. The half marathon and 10 kilometre races start at the finish venue at 07h00 and is an out-and-back race on the ultra marathon route.
