As February starts to wrap up and Comrades training is in full swing the Comrades Marathon Association is putting on another round of the Bonitas Novice Project Seminars. In 2010 these talks proved to be extremely popular and this year they promise to be the same.
These seminars are an invaluable source of information for first-time Comrades Marathon Runners. The following topics will be covered in detail at these seminars:
• The importance of recovery
• The final long run
• Race day – Getting to the start, the profile, strategy.
Speakers this year include the Official Comrades Coach, Lindsey Parry, Bruce Fordyce and myself to name just a few. All the speakers will be on hand to answer all questions from the audience. Entrance to these seminars is free and bookings are not necessary but it is advisable to get to the seminars early.
This year they will be hosted at the following venues on the following dates:
