We are in!

Our entries have been accepted for the Wildcoast Wildrun - yeeeha! All off-road so the training will be a little different than for Comrades. Probably not so much milage but more strength and speed training. I am SOOOOO excited. Only 160 people get accepted so it really is quite a thing. Right must go plan a training schedule.
Here is the splurb:

The Wildrun is fast becoming one of the most sought-after multi-day wilderness trail running events in the World. Runners run solo for 112km over three days along arguably the most beautiful and scenic coastline in South Africa – the Transkei Wild Coast.

The Wildcoast Wildrun starts at the Great Kei River; roughly 80km north of East London, and finishes at one of the most beautiful natural wonders of South Africa – the Hole-in-the-Wall. Between the two is 112km of wilderness running like nowhere else on Earth, with golden beaches, rolling hills, spectacular cliffs, wildlife, dolphins, warm sea, blue sky and friendly people! The Wildcoast Wildrun takes place in the cool but clear winter months and during a spring low tide ensuring hard golden sand – perfect for running! The route is unmarked, and runners simply follow the coastline until they reach the finish of each stage.

The Wildrun is not about the destination but about the journey. Come and experience some of the most beautiful running terrain on the planet. The Wildrun is brought to you by Wildrunner Events, organizers of the Trail Series.

  1. Ohh you are making me quite homesick for the beauty of our country. I need a holiday visit to SA where I get to see the beautiful scenery and the Cape! Good luck with the training.
