I love it! Bring it on! The heat is my demon, the cold is my b*tch! lol!  :clap:

I definitely operate in colder temps than heat.

Grease_Monkey, Apr 25 2018 12:09

I'm in  :thumbup:  The half this year was tough, but motivated me to do the full in 2019. Training will start this weekend haha - gonna take a whole year for me to get in the shape I want to be to do the full!

Good luck to everyone that will be taking part.

So now that the 36One killed off his only competitor in April (the TransKaroo) it now moves to May to kill off the Amarider 100 Miler  :devil:

 

But seriously, interesting move, think I prefer the April timeslot, would take warm days over very cold nights every time

It's confirmed... #The36ONE will move back to May in 2019 to ensure cooler day time temperatures. The route will also see a slight tweak to avoid Dysseldorp. 100 exclusive early bird entries will be available from Thursday the 26th of April for past participants so if you want to secure your spot and a bumper Biogen hamper keep your finger on the trigger on Thursday afternoon.

 

Well a extra month to train after the festive season, so maybe it's a good thing. Will enter and make my arrangement next year.

OKAAAY!! I succumbed to my better judgement yet again  :eek:

 

Entry in! ...... now to get lean and mean.386 days, 12mths and and to get that right! lol!

 

Being in May month, I think that Karoo dust is going to be a little damp.... :whistling:

Fattyboom, Apr 27 2018 12:44

Registered for the full after doing the 2 x Relay this year!  :eek:

Slowbee, Apr 27 2018 03:09

I prefer heat to cold. I dont do cold.

 

I see everything else is sold out.

Think the date change is a good idea. Many cyclists used to do Joberg2C and 36one. (Me included) This year both races started on the same day. ( this year I gave both a rest after being none stop sick after Munga, but if had to choose between the two, I think J2C most likely would have been first choice)

So thinking about doing this, I see registration is on the 17th till 16h00, what time is the start though? 

 

Try to see if I could squeeze it in after Sani trail that ends on the 16th? 

Grease_Monkey, Nov 29 2018 05:28

The 36One full usually starts 6pm, the half starts the next morning at 6am.
