Race 4 Charity offers runners an opportunity to turn their running efforts into something great for charity, and the CMA is hoping to build on the foundation they laid over the past five years. The campaign is intended to foster wider support for charitable fundraising for the CMA's six official charities. An exciting facet to this campaign is that runners have the opportunity to improve their seeding batch, while raising funds for a good cause.
The CMA has reserved 1,000 entries for runners, who need to raise R5,000 each. This will ensure that they get to start in their own special seeding batch ("CC" - Comrades Charity batch) near the front of the field on race day.All Race 4 Charity runners will also be on the receiving end of an exclusive goodie bag which they can collect during Registration from their chosen charity.
How do I join: The entry process is also a simple one, runners need to enter the 2016 Comrades by closing date of entries but will have until 5 May 2015 to sign up and 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. We have also managed to secure some incentive prizes for those runners who raise the most for the Amabeadibeadi charities.
