We are all looking forward to yet another incredible Comrades in 2017. The Comrades race director, Rowyn James, confirmed that the entry cap of 20,000 had been reached and that the official entry process has been closed.
As in the years before, there will be a substitution process, but 2017 has an extended week; which sees the process run from the 14th of March up until the 4th of April 2017.
So if you're one of the unforunate people who might have missed out on the registrations, be sure to get your substitution in next year and ensure that you are on the Comrades 2017 start list!

Running Tip of the Month
Your mental training is as important as your physical and technical training and we all know that on race-day the mental plays the biggest/most important part. Having a mental edge can also give you a physical edge because the mind controls the body.
Mental skills need to be practiced regularly. It takes time and practice to become a master of your own mind. In order to obtain invaluable information and advice regarding mental training, please come and attend the information sessions currently on offer (free of charge) at our club.
