Comrades is a tactical race and getting the pace correct for the UP run is particularly important. Race founder, Vic Clapham, recognised the challenge of the climb from City Hall out of Durban. He started the first UP run at Tollgate to ensure the runners did not have to face the initial steep 4km climb. This was and should be a historic warning for every Comrades UP run that followed.
