Route change for Comrades Marathon

The iconic Comrades Marathon is set for an equally epic finish in 2018 after the Moses Mabhida Stadium was announced as the new final destination for the biennial ‘down run’.

A slight change in the route, which still needs to be measured, will see thousands of road-runners enter the stadium through the aptly named vomitory.

This was among the changes the Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) announced at the annual media launch of the 93rd edition of The Ultimate Human Race.

Comrades Marathon race director Rowyn James said the route would effectively be the same as in 2016 with the exception of the final eight kilometres.

Among the changes for next year’s race is the formal introduction of a professional category seeding batch for men with a marathon time less than two hours, 30 minutes and a sub-3 hour time for women.
