Lindsey Parry Comrades Marathon

With Comrades training season upon us, the Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) has implemented a series of online seminars to get athletes in South Africa and across the world “race-ready” for the 93rd edition of The Ultimate Human Race.

Comrades Coach Lindsey Parry has urged runners to click through to the Comrades Marathon website: http://www.comrades.com/events/webinars and sign up for the free Bonitas Comrades webinars.

Coach Parry says, "We encourages athletes to register for the seminars as they will provide a step by step guide to help you prepare properly for the race, avoid the common causes for injury and give you an opportunity to ask questions from the experts.”

The next webinar will be hosted on Monday, 19 February 2018. Among the topics to be covered are:
