THE Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) said yesterday there has been an unprecedented number of enquiries regarding the opening of entries for next year’s race, but aspirant entrants must be patient for the release of all the relevant details.

The organisation advised that the details would be released at the official media launch of the race on October 2.

Said CMA chairperson Cheryl Winn: “We understand that our passionate Comrades athletes are anticipating being part of the 95th running of The Ultimate Human Race. It will be a very special edition of the race; and one which we are all looking forward to.

“We ask that runners bear with us until Wednesday, 2 October when we will announce our race plans, confirm the exact date upon which entries will open towards the end of October for the 2020 Comrades Marathon and all other pertinent information.”

The 2020 race will be run on Sunday, June 14, starting at the Pietermaritzburg City Hall at 5.30 am and finishing 12 hours later at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.

This will be the 95th running of the race and the 47th Down Run.
