A big advantage of the group is one it is a free non registered club that inexperienced runners can gather a wealth of information from more experienced athletes, who are all too happy to share their knowledge.
“The group is so diverse, from elite athletes who have earned gold medals in the Comrades and Two Oceans marathons, to people weighing 120kg desperate to lose weight,” says Brett. Elite runners also join in, such as former Comrades winner Tilda Tearle and former Comrades gold medallist Carol Mercer.
