Race Director, Rowyn James has advised that this year’s Down Run from Pietermaritzburg to Durban on Sunday, 10 June 2018 will have six official cut-offs along the 90.184km route.

The first cut-off will be implemented at Lion Park with subsequent cut-offs positioned at Cato Ridge, the halfway mark in Drummond, Winston Park, Pinetown and with the final one at Sherwood.

Lion Park 15,574km 74,610km 02:30:00 (08h00)
Cato Ridge 30,276km 59,908km 04:20:00 (09h50)
Drummond 44,267km 45,917km 06:10:00 (11h40)
Winston Park 57,610km 32,574km 08:00:00 (13h30)

Sherwood 81,312km 8,872km 11:00:00(16h30)


James says, “The cut-offs, which have been carefully worked out with extensive input from the Official Comrades Coach are an important facet of the race and are there for the well-being of the athlete. Should a runner not make any one of the cut-offs within the allotted time, they will then need to board one of the provided Bailer Buses for transportation through to the finish. Ignoring the instructions of the CMA Route Managers, Technical Officials, Security Services and/or marshals will lead to disqualification.”
