2017 OLD MUTUAL SPIRIT OF COMRADES AWARDS

Nominations for this year’s Old Mutual Spirit of Comrades Awards Gala have closed. The CMA received over 70 nominations from runners, supporters and the public at large.

Three deserving awardees are recognized for their noble human attributes of selflessness, dedication, perseverance and spirit of Ubuntu, as well as their love for The Ultimate Human Race every year.

All three recipients of the coveted award are presented with a one-ounce, 24 carat gold medallion, courtesy of Old Mutual.

The awards criteria place special emphasis on Comrades Marathon winners, legends, volunteers and otherwise ordinary heroes and heroines, who through individual acts of service, sacrifice, courage or perseverance, either in a single race or over a period of time, exhibit the noble qualities associated with the Comrades Marathon.
