If so, then why not join us on the Bus Tour of the Comrades Marathon Race Route for International Runners? The Tour takes place on Friday, 29th and Saturday, 30th May 2015 and is aimed specifically at the Comrades Marathon Novice, to whom preference will be given when allocating seats on the busses. Participants are entitled to be accompanied by one guest. The Tour will be limited to 200 persons on each day. In the event of the Friday Tour being over-booked, the excess number will be automatically placed on the Saturday Tour. (Should such a contingency arise, you will be advised, by e-mail, well in advance.)


The cost of the Tour is ZAR200 per person and should be paid through the Entry process.


The busses will be hosted by highly experienced Comrades Runners and boarding commences at 07H30.


The busses depart from outside the Comrades Expo in Durban at 08H00 sharp and will follow the Race Route, stopping at the Comrades Marathon Wall of Honour (in the Valley of a Thousand Hills) and the Ethembeni School, for disabled children, before proceeding to the Finish Venue in Alexandra Park in Pietermaritzburg. After visiting the Finish Venue, the busses will stop at the Comrades Marathon House and Museum, where light refreshments will be served, before returning, via the National Road, to the departure point in Durban.

The duration of the Tour will be approximately 6½ hours.
