Hi all,

The Poor Mans Comrades (PMC) run is on the 17 June and is less than a month away.  I could not find another thread on this so I have started a new one.  

I planned to start it in 2004 and had a work event on and last year I was injured.  

This year I plan to start it and see what happens.  I think  a few of us could have some fun starting this run and getting to the other side of Bobbin Head and catch a train home if we have to. This would be almost 40km.  Others could pull out at Turramurra and be under 30km.

I have  taken the liberty of modifying the website's spreadsheet  to take into account different paces and estimated section times along the course for those who are interested.  

The more the merrier.  Think about joining us at the start at 7:00am at the Opera House.

Who are the starters?

As it was my major goal for 2006, I will definitely be at the Opera House steps at 7am. I will be treating this run as a day out with some mates and just plod along with Plu, 2p and Kev. Should be a lot of fun!

I have even been getting emails from people I have never heard of saying they are running !

I will more than likely just run the first 50km, given my current state of fitness or lack of.

Keen to run this but may not be a starter for a couple of reasons - McLeay River Marathon the weekend before and it is the night of the SMC annual dinner - so if I ran I would need to be back in Sydney by 8.00pm to get to Guilford by 9 which might be a hard call.

Might do the short option.  B)

This clashing with the bay 2 bay may stop me ever running it, however maybe one year I'll start early and try a double, that's a long time in the future.

Can't believe i'm actually putting this out there but a certain vegan, KT-wearing freak has almost convinced me i might be able to make the distance so i might be at the Opera House 7am too. Am very, very slow so no doubt will be running solo. God, somebody slap me ...

Quick question...

If one was wanting to run 15-20k just to be part of it and support the rest of you, is it better to join you at the start or along the way (unfortunately it would have to be more on the Sydney side than the Gosford side)

Tim you could start at the Opera House and run with us to Chatswood and beyond. Running over the Harbour Bridge as the sun is rising is special.  ;)   Or if you want a lie in, tag along later along the Pacific Highway, I'll be carrying my mobile so you could just call and hook up somewhere along the way? Shoot me an e-mail if you want my number.

Hope to see you there.

Redback - it depends on how easy it is to have your transport etc arranged. If you run 20km then stop - its hard to see/offer support with no car. If meeting someone with a car then it makes it easier.

Over the years, people have done many different combinations. All variations perfectly welcome.

each run is good training for the next so all you really need to do is start somewhere.  And a run that is peppered with train stations has to be the ideal place to enter the Fatass World.

There are many good reasons not to do this run.  But in the end you will regret it if you do not come out and have a go.

Forgive me for butting into the ultraworld but do you feel that you are racing these races? or you do them for the fun of the run? Or do you target a specific race every few months?

I am not as qualified as some on this site to answer this question but I will throw my 2 bobs worth in.

To attempt to run 100 miles, it is beneficial to get through a few 50 mile events. Just like in marathon training, you need to get a few 30km runs under your belt.

How well people run these events depends upon their endurance, fitness and experience.

I will now let the more qualified Ultra Runners have their say.

Redback last year I targeted being around after 40km  and then between 60 and 70 km - a good time to see the state of the runners and offer support.  Last year it was easier as 40km was Pie in Sky and 60-70km was in Bobbin Head.  This year 40km is Mt Colah and 60-70 km is the climb out of Mooney Mooney.    

If you can manage a bike as well you have a few options - you too Aunty.  Run with the group to between Chatswood-Turramurra.  Have a car meet you there with a bike and drive ahead to Mt Colah and then ride back towards the group.  This would work well if you bail soon after Chatswood allowing you time to ride back towards the group and then ride with them through Bobbin Head.  It is easier to ride this section as there is much less traffic.  If you bail too much after Chatswood you will have less time with runners in Bobbin Head.

Alternatively you can run with the runners from Turramurra (30km) to Berowra- Cowan (50km) where the support would be really appreciated.  However, on a bike you can move up and down the line providing  so food and drink.

Last year there seemed to be a lot of racing.  The lead guy came flying down into Bobbin Head got a drink from his crew, changed support runners and took up the hill to Turramurra  - he finished in 8 hours something.  Further back ( and not too far back)people were just happy to keep going.

This year I sense and have spoken to a few who just want to go for a run.  MIght be the start of a new era with a lot of people just "running around the block".

It's okay FPT, your interest has been logged for future reference.  :)  

I've done a lot of marathon- 60K type stuff over the years purely as training, so I won't push hard in these events. I do try to ramp up the distances of the really long runs as I approach my target races, which are usually 100 miles or more (or Six Foot Track), so I'll be doing 100K events, etc. Trailwalker is a great training run for a 100 miler, pity it clashes with Glasshouse these days.

I'll also add that with a lot of ultras in your legs you tend to recover quite fast from big events (at least, that was the case with me before I got Glandular Fever, not sure how things work for me now)- I could count on being ready to resume normal training three weeks after a 100 miler. So to do the shorter distance ultras in succession was not a major hassle.

PMC-training run, but will run reasonably hard and will be treating it as a race. With the next race a few weeks later, plenty of time to recover. The main focus is most definitely on the longer events at the end of the year and as such this is a "training" race in the build up. There will be minimum taper (if any at all, I didn't last year). A recovery week and then straight back into big weeks.
Still lots of fun to be had too.   ;)

all of the above.

for me the main goal of this year is a 100 Mile.   Although the C2K is starting to dominate my head. But that does not mean that the PMC is not something I am hoping to do well at.  I will, like Spud not be tapering and I will be trying to run it hard.  

It is also a time to do what I enjoy best - sharing the experience of a long run with people who share a similar passion.  Then there is the added benefit of getting to talk a lot about it on coolrunning.

Plu,

I was pleased to read that you managed to pull through what must've been a very tough last 16km when I DNF'd at Canberra. Well done. My Comrades dream this year has been shattered as a result of the same injury.

I am in the process of sending water sachets to Sydney for the Blacktown Fun Run 4th June and the Westlink M7 Marathon end July. As you know the water sachets are the same product as is used at the real Comrades. I would like to sponsor the Poor Mans Comrades with 1000 sachets (10 boxes), and give the runners at the PMC a taste of the real event.

To this end I will send 10 additional boxes with the Blacktown Fun Run delivery, and if you're interested, you will be able to arrange to fetch these from the event organiser of that event, and distribute to your and other support crew of the PMC. Please get hold of me on 0412 425 417 so that I can pass his details on to you.

Kind Regards,
WB

HI Waterbag,

I hope you are on the road to recovery.  

Thanks for the offer of water bags.  I am not sure how to proceed from here. As I will be going starting a 'run around the block' that morning.

I should be able to get the water bags as the link in the chain to a group of people who might be going for a Saturday morning and afternoon drive up the Pacific Highway.

If anyone is planning a Saturday drive up the Pacific Highway, as a  few people "run around the block",  a boot of water bags would be useful.   Also I am sure somehow  a stash of waterbags could be place out near Mt White the  night before....

cheers  Plu

I guess Alan means to give him a call and pick up from Blacktown Council or from the Fun Run venue.

I am not running the fun run, but may be able to pop over to the event after my long run Sunday morning.

I could pick it up for you or arrange for one of of club 'members' to do so.

My estimate is that you may only require 300-400 bags (at a rate of one per 5km).

cheers

No plans to enter into the ultra world beyond the debacle that was 6ft at this stage. I'd probably just like to be able to run more than 80ks a week without my limbs falling off.

My initial thoughts were around, why is anybody doing this race if they aren't really racing? Then after the comments I realised that if you are needing to do these distances in training why not do it in a way that is enjoyable and provides a yearly checkpoint to see how you are tracking. Sometimes it's a little hard to get my head around the fact that you can recover in a week from a 100k run, maybe one day.

Colin/Plu,
My intentions of using a transport company to deliver to Blacktown this AM were dashed due to the rain. Using an open trailer to get the boxes to the transport co, the boxes would collapse.

Plan B
I'll drive to Sydney on Saturday to deliver the boxes to Blacktown Olympic Park, Rooty Hill. I expect to be there at 1pm. Under the circumstances I would be prepared to drop the boxes off at a nearby destination from 12-2pm. Please advise.
Cheers,
WB

When waterbag donated a few boxes of these for C2K I was really doubtful whether they would be any use in an ultra.  But, to my surprise, I preferred carrying three or four each stop to carrying a bottle.

How can I get to this?  Wouldn't that be a great double. Richmans then poormans back to back...

There are some ultra runners that would consider 45 km/wk over training.  :P  

FPT they may say they are not racing but I guarantee there will be plenty of glancing over the shoulder along the course.  ;)

With carrying the waterbags, once you have drunk them just shove it into your pants until the next bin/drink station--too easy.

Don't worry, we've worked a way of getting it from Alan.

many thanks  :)

Don't think there are plans for seconding stations.

Each runner (or his own second) should carry his requirement.

Plu I was looking through the spreadhseet but don't the area well enough to know what locations would be suitable retreat points close to public transport. I am thinking something like 35-50k may be a goer for me.
