(EN) Comrades 2011 - sheer madness

On May 29th, 2011, the 86th Comrades Ultra Marathon will be held. This time it's "uphill" from Durban to Pietermaritzburg. Uphill means: 1800m uphill, 1200m downhill during your 89 km journey.

Quite nasty: the first 20 km will be uphill most of the time - very dangerous, you have to be carefull not to push to hard in the beginning and pay the price lateron, when you might be running out of energy to finish...

But this seems to have no effect on runners - they just want to run it, and if you need evidence, you just have to look at the numbers entering the event.

They opened the entry system on Sept 1th, and in the meantime (today is the 17th of Sept) there are already some 7500 runners signed up for 2011. Crazy ;)
