Comrades race marshals honoured

THE Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) has honoured race marshals who ensure that the comrade’s marathon is a safe event.

The CMA hosted the 2014 Community Marshals’ Green Name Awards function at Comrades House in Pietermaritzburg on Saturday where 24 marshals were honoured.

The event is held in recognition of the community marshals who have been of service to the Comrades Marathon for 10 years.

The comrades marathon community marshals programme was implemented by the CMA in 2005 in response to a need for greater runner safety.

Each of the 24 recipients was honoured with a “Green Name Certificate” and a special Comrades gift by the chairperson of the CMA, Macdonald Chitja and other officials.
