Maxed: Gearing Up for Comrades Gold

Parkrun Comrades

Sizonqoba! Together, we triumph, and this year, MRP Sport’s Maxed team runners are getting set for another triumphant Comrades Marathon in Maxed’s marathon series of running shoes.


Amongst this epic marathon series is the Marathon Racer – the shoe the Maxed team will be wearing as they take on this year’s 87km up-run in. This running shoe has not only earned the team eighteen Comrades gold medals since its debut in 2013, but the it was also the shoe worn by 2016 Comrades Marathon winner and down-run record-holder, David Gatebe.


The Marathon Racer is constructed with dual density heel cushioning which offers enhanced comfort with every step, while its super-lightweight construction ensures a faster run and its reflective details make sure you’re visible, even during those runs in lowlight conditions.


Beyond its winning construction – just like the rest of the Maxed range – the Maxed Marathon Racer is available at a fraction of the price of the other brands in its category. 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). And don’t forget – select Click + Collect at checkout and you can save big on shipping!
