Comrades Marathon athletes have one week to enter the Toyota Win-A-Car competition to stand in line to win a brand-new Toyota Corolla Quest worth more than 200-thousand rand.
The Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) has announced that 2018 Comrades entrants have until midnight on Sunday, 19 November 2017 to make a minimum donation of R50 to the charity of their choice or to the Amabeadibeadi Charity Drive. This will ensure their entry into the Comrades Toyota Win-a-Car Competition.
Every R50 donation will allow the athlete one entry into the competition. For example, a R200 donation will entitle the runner to 4 entries. The competition will be conducted on a lucky draw basis and overseen by auditors, BDO South Africa. Terms and conditions apply.
Runners who donate towards the Amabeadibeadi Charity Drive will have their donation split equally amongst the six Official Comrades Charities. In terms of the rules & regulations of the SA Lotteries Board, the competition is restricted to South African citizens and permanent residents. The competition closes at midnight on Sunday, 19 November 2017.
Thanks to Toyota SA and the CMA, one lucky athlete will be driving off in a brand new Toyota Corolla Quest before the start of the holiday season.
