The Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) say they are saddened by the passing of former CMA vice chair, life member, elder, volunteer and Comrades runner, Allan Vincent . He was 70 years old.

CMA chairperson Cheryl Winn said Allan’s association with the Comrades Marathon dates back to the mid-1970s, when together with his business partner, Bullet Alexander and a gang of volunteers, he built the Start and Finish at the race.

Winn adds, “Allan served on the CMA Executive and Organising Committee for nine years between 1985 — 1994, the last three of which as vice chairman of the Association, and in 1994 was awarded CMA Life Membership with Honours for his sterling, selfless and 100% volunteer contribution to CMA.
