THE Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) has announced that entries for the 2016 Comrades Marathon will close within three weeks or as soon as the cap of 20 000 entries has been reached.

Race director, Rowyn James said there are currently just over 5 000 entries available and urged runners who have not yet entered to get their entry in before the entries close.

“Sunday, 29 May, 2016 will be the 45th down-run in the history of the race and the 91st running of the world’s biggest and oldest ultra-marathon,” said James.

The Comrades Marathon has earned its place in the Guinness World Records, in addition to winning other significant awards. It was recently shortlisted for the 2016 Discovery Sport Industry Awards in the categories Sport Brand of the Year and Sport Participation Event of the Year, the winners of which will be announced in February 2016.
