In keeping tradition, Poor Man's Comrades (PMC) will be held on:

Start time: 7am Sat 9th June, 2012 (always the second Sat of June)
Direction: Down year
Start location: Gosford train station
Finish location: Opera House

Official race details: http://www.coolrunni...'s_Comrades
Can anyone update the Poor Mans Comrades page with the current start details?
It hasn't been updated since 2010 even though the race was held last year.


Who is planning to join the madness?

With everyone else overseas, running the GNW250, or having other commitments, it was a small field this year of EvereadyBunny and I. Wadaye was a no show.
We ran together for most of the course finishing in 12 hrs 23 mins.
The weather was perfect, although my hand-numbingly cold running through the morning fog for a couple of hours which we were in for perhaps 2 hrs.
A brilliant day out.
I'll write a more detailed report soon.

Well done Grant and Allison. Sorry I wasn't there this year for the first time in many years but I have been away for the last month.

Need to set up for 2013 so we can get some enthusiasm for comrades even amongst those who are not going. Post here if interested in training for comrades for 2013 and get the Facebook page access.
