1st September 2009 entries will open to all previous Comrades Runners ONLY. Phase 1 will be capped at 15,000 entrants and will close on 31 October 2009 at 18h00, or whichever comes first (eg. if we receive 15,000 entries by the 10th October 2009 then no further entries will be accepted).
1st November 2009 at 09h00 entries will open to all Novices ONLY and will be capped at 5,000. Entries will close on 30 November 2009 at 18h00, or whichever comes first (eg. if we received 5,000 novice entries by 15th November 2009 then no further entries will be accepted).
NO ENTRIES WILL BE TAKEN IN 2010!
Qualifying period for 2010 will be from 24 May 2009 to 26 April 2010. Runners who finish the 2009 Comrades Marathon can use their finishing time as a 2010 qualifier.
As in 2009, runners will be able to enter before they qualify. This means while all entries will have to meet the entry criteria above, runners will still be allowed to qualify in official qualifying races up until the month of April, with the 26th April as the final cut-off date. Upon qualification, runners simply need to give the time and details of the qualifying race through to the CMA office. Upon receiving the qualifying information the runner’s entry will be confirmed.
Race Day is Sunday 30 May 2010.
