- Preparing for the Colac 6-day Race!
Two days down the road I aim at participating in the Colac 6-day Race
(website: http://sixdayrace.org.au/colac/index.php), which will go on day
& night from 21 to the 27.November.
Already now I am beginning to meet other participants on their way down to
Colac ... when they pass by in their cars! It is looking to be a friendly
race all right. Many of them take their time to take a chat with me at the
roadside :-) And some of them have already run parts of my stages with me.
Much appreciated :-)
As you probably can figure out, I won?t have much chance of making a place
in the top rankings of the pretty tough 21-runner field. But for me it
will be just as much about having a mental break from the overall goal:
the distance I will cover in Colac wont count towards the way to the
finish point some 12 000km down the road, but it will be a chance to pick
up on a lot of "runners talk" and in general have a good time!
- A 6 day race is almost a ultra runners party; which goes on for 6 days
Look forward to that!
