Comrades has 13 000 entries


Two months into the 2016 Comrades Marathon entry process, the Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) has announced that over 13 000 entries have already been received.

There is one month remaining before entries close on 30 November or as soon as the entry cap of 20 000 is reached.

CMA Race Director, Rowyn James has urged South African athletes to enter the race before the entry period ends to avoid disappointment.

James says, ‘The 91st Comrades Marathon will be the 45th down-run in the history of the race. Plans are in place to make it a truly memorable experience for our runners come Sunday, 29 May 2016.’

Over the recent past, the Comrades Marathon has been attracting participants from nearly 70 countries, with the highest tally of international runners coming from the United Kingdom, Australia and the United States of America.
