ASICS Comrades Competition

It’s almost time for the 91st Comrades Marathon and our partners, ASICS South Africa, has generously offered us this opportunity to give away a pair of men’s or women’s ASICS Gel Nimbus 18 running shoes valued at just over R2200 a pair.

In the history of the race there has only been 7 South African women to have won the Comrades two or more times.

In 2015 Caroline Wöstmann became the first South African woman to win this prestigious race since Rae Bisschoff in 1998, and will be aiming to do the double on 29 May 2016 when thousands of runners will take on the gruelling 89km challenge from Pietermaritzburg down to Durban.



After 18 years of innovation, the Nimbus® series continues as one of ASICS’ most recognized high performing footwear. The new GEL® placement offers modernized geometry of cushioning, designed to improve adaptability and mitigate brisk impacts.
