The Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) hosted the Cape Town leg of the Old Mutual-Comrades Women Seminars at the Garden Court-Nelson Mandela Boulevard this past weekend.
With a sold-out venue and three hours of gripping presentations from the Comrades Coach, Lindsey Parry and other professionals, including a sports psychologist, medical doctor and a nutritionist, the ladies attending were left informed and empowered to take on the Comrades Marathon on Sunday, 31 May 2015.
Four similar seminars will be held in other major cities during February and March, with Johannesburg hosting the next sold-out seminar this coming Saturday (7.2.2015).
The sessions are aimed at providing technical as well as professional support to the female participants in this year’s Ultimate Human Race and those aiming to do so in the near future. It’s fun, interactive and packed with expert advice, tailor-made for the ultra-runner.
CMA Marketing Coordinator, Thami Vilakazi says, “Our aim is for all ladies taking part in this year’s Comrades Marathon to be adequately prepared for it. At these women-specific seminars, they are empowered with the technical and professional support that they require to train well and run a good race.”
A delicious breakfast is part of the deal.
Cost: R75 per person (breakfast included).
