A race that needs no introduction, the Comrades Marathon is a world renowned event that encapsulates hard work, determination, and of course camaraderie. Hot, dusty conditions made Comrades 2013 one of the toughest in history; and the athletes who crossed the finish line inspired this year’s campaign: ‘Hard is what makes it great!’ Let’s hope the conditions for 2015 are slightly more favourable, but just as inspiring. Good luck to all those running!!
The distance of 87km is subject to change.
It is an “UP RUN” starting at the City Hall in Durban and finishing at The Oval Cricket Stadium in Pietermaritzburg. The race distance is approximately 87 km. The distance is subject to change and will be confirmed in the final race instructions.
