Top training advice on Comrades Down Run

Take a closer look as some of the pages of my Comrades Marathon Down Run training eBook or just download it here. It details how to prepare for and improve your Comrades results, and also features current thinking on how to fuel your body - while training and on race day. Both the Up and Down Run eBooks are fully-revised updates of my old best-seller. Whether you choose just the Down or the Up run versions, or choose the comprehensive compendium of the two, I hope you find them helpful.

Experience the Comrades Marathon with me

Find out more about the hills and hearbreakers, and how to manage them, on my annual pre-race Route Tours on Friday 12 June. Book for the epic Comrades After-Party on the Monday too. It'll be here before you know it!

I speak almost as well as I run

These days that doesn't mean much, thanks to my gammy knee. But I do love to entertain. Over the years I've talked at Motivational Conferences, given inspirational speeches, commentated on TV, emceed at multiple events. I've even judged a Miss World contest! What event are you planning?

Whenever my husband and I were in doubt about training for the Comrades, I had a look at Bruce's book.
