Entries for the Knysna Forest Marathon and Half Marathon opened online today. I am certain that by the time I actually publish this, the entries for the Half will all have been taken — I hope you got yours. If not, maybe this is the year to upgrade to the Full!
To-date I have completed one Knysna Half Marathon, in 2010, and one Knysna Marathon — my first marathon — in 2011. My 2011 time was 03:58:10, which I was pretty pleased with, but my marathon time has become progressively slower, so I will be aiming to change this on 14 July!
I am pleased to see in that the finish is being moved back to the festival grounds near the waterfront as it was in 2010. I will NOT miss the last few kilometres along the lagoon-front on that awful brick walkway. By all reports the start of last year’s Half Marathon was utter chaos; let’s hope they have things sorted out for 2012.
