The Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) will once again host the annual Bonitas Comrades Expo at the Durban Exhibition Centre in May.
The three-day Expo is the largest running-related exhibition in South Africa, with more than 100 exhibitors, showcasing the latest in running-gear, nutrition, technology and more.
With over 50,000 visitors attending last year’s Expo, the event has become a highlight on the Durban exhibition calendar; and caters for every kind of runner and sporting enthusiast.
So whether you are a novice or veteran runner, the Comrades Expo is not to be missed. This is the meeting place for athletes from around South Africa and the globe before their big race on Sunday, 31 May 2015. It is a space where stories are shared, advice is swopped and pre-race nerves are quelled.
The Durban leg of the Comrades Athlete Registration process is a major facet of the Expo. Runners who have opted to do their Comrades registration in Durban can collect their race numbers here as well as their goodie bags, New Balance Comrades runner tee, Nedbank Comrades headgear; in addition to the 90th commemorative Comrades watch if they’ve ordered one.
Comrades Coach Lindsey Parry and other running professionals will also be on hand to offer advice and support. Entrance is free. Be part of the Comrades experience by visiting the Durban Exhibition Centre between the 28th and 30th of May 2015 between 09h00 and 19h00 on Thursday and Friday; and 09h00 to 17h00 on Saturday.
Race Director Rowyn James says, “In line with our 90th Comrades Marathon celebrations, our three-day Expo is going to be an exciting and memorable experience. We invite you to be part of it.”
