“Last Minite Comrades Tips” with Lindsey Parry

Last minute tips

On behalf of New Balance South Africa, we would like to formally invite you/ runners from your club to attend a Made for Comrades workshop featuring Lindsey Parry, one of South Africa’s most widely recognized coaches in preparation for the Comrades Marathon.

Parry has a unique ability to understand what it takes to succeed at any level and thrives on coaching, motivating and inspiring others to do the same.

Join us on the evening of the 19th May, 17:30 for 17:45 at the New Balance Lighthouse Store, Mall of Africa, Midrand for some value adding tips on the Comrades Marathon route, race day preparation and much more.

There will be a 10% discount on all New Balance Comrades gear for the evening, and one lucky guest will also stand a chance to win a brand new pair of Fresh Foam 1080’s.





2016 Comrades Down Program


Happy New Year All.

Hope everyone had a great break and is ready to get going on the New Year goals!

Jenni has put together a superb program to help achieve your goals, thank you!

UPDATED: 2016 Comrades Down Program

One thing I’ve noticed over the years is that the Bombers consistently achieve excellent Comrades times. This I believe is due to the comradery found in this group and getting out there and doing the work in the program!

“So what are you afraid of? What is holding you back? What is it that stands in your way? Do it!” – Norman Vincent Peale (1898-1993)

RAC Tough One – Makro Water Table Helpers needed

On Sunday 22nd November, the RAC Tough One is being run.

Doug Jones has arranged that Makro sponsors the 22km water table (at the corner of Milner and Bayswater in Ferndale).

If you are not running and are willing to give something back to the club, your help at the water table will be greatly appreciated.

The RAC Wednesday night running group will be helping man (and woman) the water table and would appreciate any help that the Bombers can provide.
