Comrades Marathon 2018

Comrades Marathon 2018 will be down run, taking place on June 10th . The race will begin at City Hall in Pietermaritzburg, ending at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.

CHOC was chosen as a charity of choice for this year’s Comrades Marathon: #Asijiki – No turning back. We are so honoured to be part of this international run that is an ultimate test of human endurance.

Race 4 Charity

The Race 4 Charity campaign is intended to foster wider support for charitable fundraising for the Comrades Marathon’s six official charities. An exciting facet of this campaign is that runners have the opportunity to improve their seeding batch, while raising funds for a good cause. The Comrades Marathon has reserved 500 entries for runners, who need to raise R5000 each. This will ensure they get to start in the “Charity” batch near the front of the field on race day. Follow the link on the Comrades website to sign up, and encourage your family, friends, co-workers and supporters to donate and leave messages of motivation on your fundraising page.

The entry process is a simple one. Runners need to enter the marathon by the official closing date but have until May 2, 2018 to sign up to raise funds. Please note that normal race rules still apply for entries and there are no refunds, should a runner fail to qualify or raise the minimum amount. For more information and details on our charity initiative, please visit www.comrades.com.

If you are running we urge you to Race 4 Charity and choose CHOC as your charity of choice. http://www.comrades.com/charities/race-4-charity
