Wow, there is so much to be said about the race itself.  I could write pages and pages and still not cover half of what it is about.  What I will do is to try separate the race itself into different aspects and write a bit about each of them.  Just click on the appropriate link to read more about each aspect.  Please remember that this is based on my personal experiences and that there are many other ways to run this race I’m sure.

OK, here goes . . .

I hope that you have found this information useful.  It has worked for me!

Key words: Comrades Marathon, the race itself, practical and mental considerations, different approaches, body check, hanging in
