In spite of not being able to hold Comrades Marathon for two years running, the Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) was still able to raise inspiring amounts of money for its Amabeadibeadi Charities.

The 2020 and 2021 Comrades were cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic and replaced with virtual races in both years.

For years, CMA has been using the world famous ultra-marathon to boost the coffers of different charities.
