RAC Time Trial

Posted on June 3rd, 2014

I’m a fan of time trials, midweek competition

Its day 3 of the Juneathon and I’m doing ok. I decided to do the RAC time trail this evening and managed 5km (30min, not great). I’ve added the details about the time trial below. Hope it helps any new runners to get out and do it.

Comments
This is one of the biggest time trials in Johannesburg, there are always loads of people (100+). The route has some hills but not too bad. The 8km consists of two laps. I was impressed that most of the street lights were working. In winter it gets dark quickly so put on some bright clothes. Water is usually served at the finish. Many people visit the bar afterwards.
