“The expert in anything was once a beginner.”
Randburg Harriers Running Club will host the first of five Bonitas Comrades Novice Seminars in Central Gauteng today. With 75 days to go to the 48thComrades Marathon Up Run, the Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) is putting Runners First, with an extra special focus on the Comrades novice athlete.
Today’s session kicks off at the Randburg Harriers Clubhouse, Hoërskool Randburg, corner of Malibongwe and Rabie Fontainebleau Roads in Johannesburg, and is designed for the first time Comrades Marathon runner. 
Pertinent training information and advice from the Comrades Coach, Lindsey Parry and other experts, including a medical doctor and dietician will be shared, including injury prevention, training, running shoes, tapering and race day strategies.
A doctor will also be on hand to advise on all things medical as well as spell out the dangers of medicating whilst running. The dietician will cover runners’ nutrition, including meal ideas for optimum nutrition before, during and after training as well as race day sustenance.
Registered Dietician, Nicki de Villiers works with athletes and guides them to optimum nutrition to train well and achieve their running goals. Nicki has been working in the field of dietetics for around 20 years and has been concentrating on sports nutrition for the last 14 years. 
Official Comrades Coach, Lindsey Parry will share pertinent information about training, including recovery; reasons for failure and how to prevent them. Parry’s advice to novices is: “As a novice, your main priority should be to arrive at the start line of Comrades, injury free and healthy. A few less miles in the bank and fresh legs will serve you far better than lining up with problems before the gun goes."
These seminars are interactive and highly informative. Entry is free and bookings are not necessary.
