Geared for Comrades

ultimate run final

Asijiki! This year, there’s no going back. MRP Sport’s Maxed runners are set for another gruelling Comrades Marathon. Look out for the profiles of our top athletes on the MRP Sport website, with some insights into how they have prepared for the 2018 Comrades Marathon before the race on the 10th of June.  


The Maxed team will be kitted out in the shoe of champions with a track record that speaks for itself. The Marathon Racer model alone has been worn by NINE Comrades Marathon gold medallists and has earned a total of 13 gold medals since its Comrades debut in 2013. Its proudest moment to-date: when 2016 Comrades Marathon winner, David Gatebe made history and broke the down-run record in a pair of Maxed Marathon Racers.


With affordability, comfort and outstanding quality always at its core, Maxed footwear will have you on the fast-track to always beating your best and always beating your budget. Shop the shoe of champions, and the Maxed range of footwear online at, in-store at your nearest MRP Sport store or on the MRP app (available on iOS and Android).
