The nation’s media, stakeholders, road-running dignitaries, sporting celebrities and top runners came together on 30 August 2017 for the official launch of the 2018 Comrades Marathon. It was here that the Comrades Marathon Association made two announcements, in turn, making history.
CMA Chairperson, Sifiso Nzuza said, “We are pleased to unveil our campaign for next year’s race, ‘Asijiki – No Turning Back’ which encapsulates the grit, perseverance and determination it takes to complete a Comrades Marathon. It is a relevant and all-inclusive campaign slogan that is bound to unite Comrades Marathon runners in one magnificent running of The Ultimate Human Race.”
Following this announcement, our amazing stadium was named the new finish venue for the prestigious event, elevating the media launch to the next level.
#Comrades2018 will be the 93rd installment, and the 46th Down Run in Comrades history. The race will kick-off at the Pietermaritzburg City Hall at 05h30 on Sunday, 10 June 2018. Runners, novice and professional alike, will then end the grueling run at Durban’s own Moses Mabhida Stadium, completing an approximate distance of 90km.
So, start training, guys! It’s going to be the most exciting Comrades Marathon yet.
