At first, Rory didn't even belong to any running club, and his training had basically been the odd 12km - 20km here and there, pretty making it all up as he went along.

He then set his sights on the big one: The Comrades Marathon. He joined a running club and upped his training, running most mornings as early as 04h30!

And then, all this sheer will and self-discipline saw Rory conquer his first Comrades Marathon 2018.
