Stats from the Comrades Association

I’ve just received some stats for the 2010 race from the Comrades Association which I’d like to share…

Total entrants to date are 21 221, this number will be revised after the next round of entries which starts on January 30th.

Of the 21 221 entries only 24% are female!!  That seems pretty low but the average is only 18% so I think that is a fabulous increase – well done ladies!!

The total number of novices entered are 5 775 – that’s a lot of sweat and anxiety on the starting line from the first timers…

The total number of countries taking part in the Comrades 2010 is 61 with the UK, USA, Australia, Brazil and Germany sending the most runners.

I think next years race is going to be spectacular, I get Goosebumps just thinking about it, I hope you guys do too!
