More than 8300 South African athletes have taken up the early bird entry fee offer of R420 since the 2017 Comrades Marathon entry process opened a month ago.
The final day for South African runners to enjoy the reduced entry fee is today (Friday, 30 September 2016). The regular price of R460 comes into effect tomorrow (Saturday, 1 October 2016) until the entry process closes on 30 November 2016 or once the 20,000 entry cap is reached.
CMA Race Director, Rowyn James says, “It is pleasing to note that nearly half of our 2017 Comrades entry cap has already been taken up in the first month of the entry process. The entry process has been going very smoothly so far and we would like to urge our runners to enter as soon as possible to secure their place on the start line.”
The entry tally currently stands at 9230. View the latest entry barometer at www.comrades.com
