PREPARATIONS for the ninth Greater Edendale race are on track.

The race will take place on 15 November and registration is now open.

As part of its corporate social investment initiative, the Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) will once again host the race at the FNB Wadley Stadium in Georgetown, Edendale.

The race has attracted in the region of 2 000 participants with prize money totally R15 000. The prize for the first man and woman home is R2 500 each. The first three walkers over the finish line for the men’s and women’s race will also be rewarded. In addition, every finisher will take home a medal and all 10km runners will receive an Edendale 10km race T-shirt.

The first two schools with most finishers will each earn digital equipment.

Participants must be at least 15 years old to run the 10km race. Temporary licences will be R10 at the registration desk. Anyone over nine may enter the five-kilometre fun run which forms part of the Aims Children’s Series initiative.

The event is run under the auspices of the International Amateur Athletics Federation, Athletics South Africa and KwaZulu-Natal Athletics.

Pre-entries are currently being taken at Comrades Marathon House (weekdays between 8am and 4.30pm). The organising committee will be at the FNB Wadley Stadium taking entries on 14 November, Saturday from 11am to 2pm. Registration will also be open on the day of the race from 5am to 7am.
