RUNNERS' GUIDE
Sign up for the Comrades Webinars

With Comrades training season upon us, the Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) has implemented a series of online webinars to get athletes in South Africa and across the world “race-ready” for the 95th edition of The Ultimate Human Race.

Coach Parry says, "We encourage athletes to register for the free webinars as they will provide a step-by-step guide to help you prepare properly for the race, avoid the common causes of injury and give you an opportunity to pose questions to the experts.”

The webinar schedule includes general information as well as novice-specific and women-specific sessions.
