We're making multi distance events, running concurrently, on a circuit course, our speciality. Following the success of the 2015 edition, this year, you will again run and/or walk on a one kilometre loop in the beautiful Alexandra Park in spring.
We're never shy to push the limits so we raised our targets from last year's 100 Capital Classic.
Per kind favour of the Inland Cricket Union and the Msunduzi Municipality's Parks and Recreation Department, the venue for the 2016 event will follow the same route as last year and will take place in the beautiful Pietermaritzburg Oval Cricket Grounds and will include the two palm lined avenues of the Mayor's Gardens.
What's on offer? A whole bunch of events including the old staples.
What's different? Again, quite a lot, but all for the better, we believe.
After canvassing our regulars and some of the top distance runners and comparing times and events around the world, we think we've come up with a winning formula.
To clean it all up, we have separated the Ultra Distance Events into two categories and time slots. For the brave at heart, this gives added opportunity to challenge themselves for nine days. For the more mortal amongst us, we hope that it will be less disruptive to your normal (working) life and allow good preparation, travel and recovery time.
