Last chance for those wishing to run Comrades

2015-04-01 00:00

THE official 2015 Comrades Marathon Substitution Process opens today.

This means that runners who were unable to enter the 2015 Comrades Marathon during the official entry period (September 1 – November 30, 2014) now have an opportunity to still be part of the world’s most famous ultra-marathon on Sunday, May 31 through the substitution process.

The process runs for the first three weeks of April (April 1 - 21) and allows for a runner who has not entered to substitute an entrant who has withdrawn, or intends to withdraw from the 2015 edition of The Ultimate Human Race.

Substitutions can only take effect on a like for like basis, meaning SA runners can only substitute for SA entrants, Rest of Africa (ROA) for other ROA runners and international runners for international entrants.

Athletes still intending to submit substitution application forms are advised to visit the official Comrades Marathon website at www.comrades.com for the downloadable forms and the comprehensive list of rules and regulations which govern the process.
