Comrades Events

I've run 30 Comrades and none of them have been quite the same. But there are some things that never change. Join me as I share them.

Whether you are running the Comrades Marathon or not, I'd love you to join me before or after the race.

Sadly, my knee still doesn't allow me to run the Comrades, but I remain extremely involved with the event. And that means I have time to share my experience with you, which can be both informative and a whole lot of fun. There are two ways you can choose to do this...

The first is before the race, "The Comrades Route Tour", and is especially valuable to those who'll actually be running. Mind you, I've discovered that there are many who just love the race and enjoy gaining insights that only a runner would have.

​The second is the famous (or infamous, depending upon how you look at it) After Party. See you there!

 

Bruce Fordyce Comrades
Route Tour 2024

Having a good look at the twists and turns, hills and valleys before the race will help prepare you for this iconic event. We will pay particular attention to the five registered hills and stop at famous landmarks such as Arthur's Seat and the Wall of Honour. I will share invaluable tips and insights along the way.

The trip will include a refreshment stop at Drummond (halfway), which boasts magnificent views of the Valley of a Thousand Hills. And, of course we will have a good look at the finish. Air-conditioned coach leaves from Elangeni Hotel at 7:00 am on Fri 7th June 2024. Cost US $65, including refreshments.

If you'd like more information, email me.

Bookings for this event are closed.
