Old Mutual-Comrades Women’s Seminar in Joburg this weekend


Female runners taking on the Comrades Marathon challenge this year are in for a treat. The Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) will host the Johannesburg leg of the Old Mutual-Comrades Women Seminars this weekend.

With informative presentations from the Comrades Coach, Lindsey Parry and other professionals, including a sports psychologist, medical doctor and a nutritionist, the ladies will be treated to a fun morning of ultra-running hints and tips.

The first of five women-specific seminars was held in Cape Town this past weekend. Johannesburg hosts the next sold-out seminar this coming Saturday (7.2.2015), followed by similar sessions in Pretoria, Nelspruit and Durban.

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 run the ultra-marathon in the near future. It’s fun, interactive and packed with expert advice, tailor-made for the female 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 as well as amazing lucky draw prizes from the CMA’s technical footwear and apparel partner, New Balance. One lucky runner will also stand the chance of winning a New Balance Top to Toe hamper worth R5000.

Cost: R75 per person (breakfast included).
