So far 9,420 entries have already been received since the entry process opened on 1 September 2014.

This means that just over 13,000 entries are available before the overall entry process closes at the end of November or as soon as the cap of 23,000 entries has been reached. Thereafter, no entries will be accepted so runners are urged to enter as soon as possible or risk missing out.

CMA Race Director, Rowyn James says, “South African runners can take advantage of the early bird entry fee of R350 for the entire month of September. From 1 October, the entry cost for South African runners will be R380.’

Runners from the Rest of Africa will be charged an entry fee of R600 and the cost to International athletes is R2,000. The entry requirements, which are clearly indicated on the entry form, must be adhered to at all times.

Enter as follows:

  • online via the Comrades Marathon website: comrades.com
  • posting the completed entry form with proof of payment to the CMA Office in Pietermaritzburg: P.O. Box 100621, Scottsville, 3209
  • handing in the completed entry form together with payment at the CMA office in Pietermaritzburg: 18 Connaught Road, Scottsville

Runners may enter the race before running a qualifying marathon (minimum qualifying distance of 42.2km run in under 5 hours) which must be run between 1 August 2014 and 3 May 2015.

The 2014 Comrades Marathon is not an automatic qualifier for the 2015 race. Qualifying details must be submitted to the CMA by 5 May 2015.

The 90th edition of the world’s leading ultra-marathon is all set to showcase South Africa’s and the world’s ultra-runners again on Sunday, 31 May 2015.

Being an ‘up-run’, the race starts at the Durban City Hall at 05h30 and ends 12 hours later at the Oval Cricket Stadium in Pietermaritzburg.
