JACKIE CAMPHER

SUB-11:00 BUS DRIVER

Jackie is
driving the Modern Athlete bus for
the second year and will be starting in Batch G, so look out for his Modern Athlete pacesetting flag if you
want to make sure of your Bronze medal. “I look forward to seeing you all in my
bus! As the start is very congested in Pietermaritzburg, I have included six minutes
in my pacing chart from the time the gun goes off till we cross the starting
line. At some stages we might be a minute or so ahead of schedule, due to the
downhills, but we will use this later for a walk break,” says Jackie. He plans
to go through the halfway mark between 5:25 and 5:27.

VLAM PIETERSE

SUB-12:00 BUS DRIVER

The
legendary Vlam is one of South Africa’s most experienced pacesetters and has
over the years successfully brought home many a sub-12:00 Comrades bus. Due to
injury, he could not run last year, and he is therefore even more determined to
run a great race this year and proudly lead home the Modern Athlete Sub-12:00 Bus. “Join me right at the back of the
starting line and we’ll have a great run together. Use the runners and supporters
around you – they are the ones that make a difference. Tell jokes, sing a song,
it will make the kilometres go by quickly. And if you do fall behind the
sub-12:00 bus, remember you have 12 hours exactly to finish, so don’t stop
before the 12 hours are over!”
