Looking back from the 5km mark on race morning - Will this be the view on 11July?
It sounded like snow on a Rhodes corrugated iron roof, but was 'happy feet' dancing. Some very excited reactions from the first batch who came off the waiting list for 2015.
While no guarantee for next year, the substitution facility on our Forum has worked like a charm these past 9 years with every request being met.
Needless to say the Forum is already active.
