2017 Comrades entry process to close


The Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) has announced that the closure of its 2017 entry process is imminent. The three-month long entry process has netted nearly 19,500 entries to date.

CMA Race Director, Rowyn James has urged prospective athletes to get their entries in before the process closes. James says, “We have capped our entries for the 2017 Comrades Marathon at 20,000. Runners from more than 97 countries have already entered and we look forward to a diverse spread of runners on Sunday, 4 June 2017.”

James has cautioned that the entry process will either close today or at the latest tomorrow. He says, “Prospective Comrades runners are urged to enter before the 20,000 entry cap is reached. It should take a few hours to reach the cap.”
