Too early to say how the weather will be. Bad weather works in my favour from a placement point of view - provided the race isn't cancelled - I seem to form part of a small group of people stupid enough to push on in bad weather :lol:

Forget about the snow! It's the final 4km on the road that you really have to worry about :laugh:

Eh, it's going to be a long day out for me. Too much of unfitness.

Anyone still looking for an Mnweni Marathon entry?

A friend of mine is injured and cannot run, and their entry is available at no charge. You will just need to pay the R 50.00 entry transfer fee.

Please pm me, including your email address so that I can email you the entry confirmation and registration ID.

Looks like Hobbit is going to be pulling out as well - he strained his ITB at Bushman's Nek on Saturday.

Incidentally Saturday was the first time since the end of March that I managed 20+km without any ITB pain at all (although I think it will be a while before I can do anything more than fast walking). I am finding that stretching every few kms does the trick. Also finding that I am not as fit as I thought right now.

My entry is also still available. Apparently you can do a substitution Friday at registration for R50 ekstra.

Weather forecast is showing snow for Friday, and a very cold, but perfectly clear Saturday morning. Do I foresee perfect photo weather :D

So let's assume it does snow, and it snows a lot...

Any tips from past events?

Ok, I know you said from past events, so no helpful insight from my side...

The forecast is progressively getting worse - yr.no now has 2mm of snow (although that is wet volume, so actually more like 10mm) for Saturday morning.

On a GT, Hobbit and I have a rule that no one is allowed to talk about bailing - does the same rule apply here regarding VE entries :lol:
