Comrades Marathon Roadshow in Cape Town this week


The Cape Town leg of the annual Comrades Marathon roadshow takes place this week. These informative sessions are geared at preparing runners for the 90th Comrades Marathon on Sunday, 31 May 2015.

A total of 22,628 runners have entered the 90th edition of The Ultimate Human Race; with 1578 entrants from Cape Town and 2396 entrants from the entire Western Cape Province.

The roadshow programme has grown in popularity over the years and has been hosted at various running clubs nationwide. CMA Marketing Coordinator, Thami Vilakazi says, “Through the Comrades Marathon roadshow, the CMA motivates runners to be a part of The Ultimate Human Race.”

Vilakazi adds, “The CMA understands that the Comrades Marathon is a tough race and many runners require more information on training methods and other know-how to prepare themselves for Race Day. The roadshow is therefore a great help to many.”

The Comrades Marathon Coach as well as other experts in the field of running and motivation will be sharing truly valuable information with the runners at these sessions.

The CMA’s technical footwear and apparel partner, New Balance will also have a lucky draw with amazing hampers up for grabs. Entry is free. You can attend one at either of these venues:
