THE City’s executive committee has approved sponsorship of R1,65 million for the Comrades Marathon for three years.

Msunduzi intends to pay R550 000 of the sponsorship amount to the CMA by January of each year and provide operational support, including ensuring the electricity supply and infrastructure at either the start or finish of the race. According to a report acting municipal manager Neli Ngcobo tabled at a recent meeting, the City’s R50 000 contribution for the Greater Edendale Race will be included in the sponsorship, for CMA to promote and host the event. Ngcobo said the Comrades has a huge economic benefit for the city. The economic injection for the 2018 race was estimated to be R700 million.
