Let’s Watch The Comrades, comrades!

This year’s Comrades Marathon has been CoVidded – no go. This was the 2013 Comrades ultra-marathon. The route runs past our doorstep, and I have a houseful of hooligans, so I hatch a plan . .


Rise up, Comrades!

We’re watching the Comrades Marathon out on the road again tomorrow, I announce. My house is infested with five know-it-alls. We’ll get up at about 5.30 and be there by 6. The route is about 600m up the road and we like to watch the ‘up’ run if we’re home.

Aaw, Dad, can’t we watch on TV? It’s much better graphics, says the lazy one.

Here comes the sun . . and the helicopter:


Now they’re into it: My five cheer every runner.


They loved it. Thanks Dad!
