Comrades Marathon Substitution Process Update!


With only two weeks to go until the close of the official Comrades Marathon Substitution Process, have you got the entry you so desperately want? This is your only chance to get an entry if you missed out during the Comrades Marathon pre-entry period.

The Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) has announced that over 300 successful substitutions have already been completed! Do not wait, this is your only chance! There is no extension of this deadline and no posted applications will be accepted!

Completed application forms must be in the hands of the CMA by Thursday, 21 April 2016. If you still intend on submitting a Substitution Application Form, please visit the Comrades Marathon website for all the downloadable forms that are required as well as the list of Rules and Regulations that apply to the substitution process.

Substitutions can only be done on a like-for-like basis. This means that South African runners can only substitute for South African entrants, while Rest of Africa (ROA) runners can only substitute for ROA entrants. The same process applies to the International athletes.

It is advised that your application for this process is completed online.
