The Trail Running Film Festival - Back on Tour for 2023.
… The @ComradesRace lets the top women start on one side of the road and the top men on the other side. The men are very courteous. Comrades is the largest and most diverse ultra in the world! I wish the American and international media recognized it more. Gold standard.
Comrades does everything they can to make their event accessible, welcoming, and affordable to everyone! They have affordable entry fees for African runners, club support, and even a program for underprivileged runners.
Comrades is an Ultra, yes. And needs more global attention, yes. We’ve conflated trail/mountain/ultra running into one and as the sport grows, a diversification will help the media and the average population make more sense of it and tell better stories.
