BRUCE FORDYCE LAUNCHES COMRADES MARATHON RUNNERS RACE CONCIERGE SERVICES IN SOUTH AFRICA Next year marks the running of the 90th Comrades Marathon in Durban, South Africa, the world’s largest ultra-marathon. To complement this successful event, nine times winner of the almost 90km race Bruce Fordyce has launched a concierge service for overseas participants. This follows the success of this year’s pilot Comrades Marathon concierge service run by the company. It is aimed at all runners and supporters participating at next year’s Comrades Marathon on the 31 May 2015. The services will include travel and accommodation packages, airport transfer, route tours given by Fordyce, race day support marquees on the 87km route up-run from Durban to Pietermaritzburg, an after party and shuttle services before and after the race. Runners will have the opportunity to board a coach and travel the exact route of the race with Fordyce as the route guide answering runner’s questions as well as providing advice. “There will be guaranteed race support at designated route points where strategically placed marquees will cater for runners giving them access to pre-packed race items, support, ablutions, a masseur service and meeting facilities for family and friends,“ said Fordyce, a director of Complete Marathons. “Not all runners have a second along the route to support them, or in many cases, the runner’s second has difficulty in finding their runner on the route. For this reason we are providing support marquees to cater for each runner’s specific needs.” Runners will provide Complete Marathons with their race supplements and replacement gear such as socks, drinks, shoelaces, sunglasses and sun block. The items will be placed in colour-coded bags at the support marquees along the route. The after-party will provide an opportunity for runners to celebrate the race with family, friends and other runners. A full buffet meal will be provided and all attending will have an opportunity to purchase a signed Bruce Fordyce T-shirt. Go to www.completemarathons.co.za to book any of these services.
