10 Comrades Marathons in 10 days


As a Comrades Marathon runner you should be well into your taper now. The best advice you’ve received is to rest as much as you can in the final days leading up to the 2014 Comrades Marathon. Right? Well, Hazel Moller, Hilton Murray and Carlo Gibson obviously didn’t get that memo!

The trio are leaving on what can only be described as a mind boggling assault on the human body tomorrow morning. They will be setting off from Johannesburg on Friday and plan to run the equivalent of 10 Comrades Marathons in the next ten days. They plan on running 90km a day (in under 12 hours each day) between Friday 23 May and Saturday 31 May to total 810km in the nine days preceding the 2014 Comrades Marathon. Day 10 will see them line up in Pietermaritzburg for the 89th running of the Comrades Marathon.

Hazel caught up with Brad Brown on Run Talk SA this week and you can listen to the interview below. You can find out more about the Ten10 challenge by visiting their website here and you can also donate to the causes they are doing this for by clicking here.
