Comrades Countdown with Norrie Williamson and Maritzburg City Marathon




Dear Runner,




It's hard to believe that in 5 weeks time we'll be standing on the start line of yet another amazing Comrades journey.


You've been training hard for months now, waking up early when the rest of the family are still fast asleep. You've been dreaming and planning for this moment for, what certainly feels like, an eternity. Don't throw your chances of a great Comrades away by doing something silly in the last few weeks. Come along and listen to the very experienced Old Mutual Virtual Coach, Norrie Williamson as he shares his vast experience with you.


Some of the topics that will be covered include:


  • All downhill from here; the end of peak training
  • Taper period; the what, why and how
  • Nutrition; before and during the race
  • Nostradamus; predict your finish time
  • Building a race plan
  • Pacing during the race
  • Mental preparation and route visualisation
  • Changes to the route


The Weekend Witness Maritzburg City Marathon, powered by Clover and all our partners wish all the Comrades runners a wonderful, safe and exhilarating race on 2 June. We hope that your dreams are fulfilled and look forwarding to welcoming you to the Capital City and the finish.
