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.
