Comrades Marathon - the race of races!!! People are glued to their tv's the morning of this big national race in South Africa which makes it a privilege to be part of.

As you are aware Comrades Marathon is on the 28th of August 2022 this year. We have a training camp for our elite athletes in Dullstroom 8 weeks prior to Comrades Marathon. We have not had the privilege to secure a Sponsor for our athletes this year because of the pandemic and other challenges that our country is facing. We are hoping to raise R 320 000,00 to ensure that the athletes attending the training camp can have an opportunity to compete against the best in our country. Our athletes are training hard throughout the year, and they are goal set to get Gold Medals and even podium this year 2022.

Being recognized as the Coach-of-Coaches some of his athlete’s achievements are as follows:
