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.”
