Get your Big C Early Bird entry in now


You have until the end of the day tomorrow (Wednesday 30 September) to get your Early Bird entries for next year’s Comrades Marathon in.

Entries for the 2016 Comrades ‘down-run’ currently stand at over 8300. The entry cap is 20 000.

The early bird entry fee of R380, applicable to South Africans, is valid until 30 September 2015. CMA Race Director, Rowyn James has urged South African athletes to take advantage of the reduced entry fee before the month long early bird entry period comes to an end.

James says, ‘Our runners are already looking forward to the 45th ‘Comrades down-run’. We plan to make it a truly memorable experience for our runners and all other stakeholders.’

As of 1 October, the South African entry fee will increase to R420. Please visit to view the rising entry barometer.

The three month-long entry process will close on 30 November 2015 or as soon as the entry cap of 20 000 has been reached.

Next year’s down-run will be the 91st edition of the world’s greatest ultra-marathon on Sunday, 29 May 2016.
