BONGUMUSA Mthembu, winner of the 2017 Comrades Marathon, spent Thursday evening training with Richards Bay running clubs as the members prepare to take on the Mandela Day Marathon later this month.
Having finished this year’s Comrades in a little over five hours, Bongumusa has much advice to pass on to fellow runners. Local running clubs, Zululand Multi Sport Club, NRB Harriers and Vertical Spaces gather every week at the uMhlathuze Sports Complex to train.
On 27 August the runners will head down to Pietermaritzburg from where they will run the 42.2km route to Howick, finishing at the Nelson Mandela capture site.
