Washie only for the brave


For those of you who think the Com­rades is a lit­tle too easy, don’t worry: the Washie 100 Miler is right around the cor­ner. The race is a mind-blow­ing 161km long, stretch­ing from Cath­cart all the way to East Lon­don. Com­peti­tors are given a full 26 hours to com­plete this daunt­ing marathon and are en­cour­aged to bring along their own sup­port team.

This year, the race has more than 100 par­tic­i­pants, with some run­ners com­ing from as far as Ger­many and the UAE to com­pete.

The race will start at the Cath­cart Coun­try Club at 5pm on Fri­day, June 27 and will pass through Stut­ter­heim and Smil­ing Val­ley be­fore fin­ish­ing at Buffs Club. Cut-off time is 7pm on Satur­day June 28.
