Thanks to Tsogo Sun, four lucky Comrades Marathon runners and supporters have won a two-night hospitality experience at a luxury Tsogo Sun hotel in Cape Town, Johannesburg or Durban over the coming months.

The leading hotel, gaming and entertainment group owns 92 hotels in Africa, Seychelles and the Middle East, 14 gaming and entertainment destinations and over 250 conferencing and banqueting facilities.

The Tsogo Sun group has been the exclusive hotel and accommodation sponsor to the Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) since 2012. The CMA teamed up with Tsogo Sun in the build-up to the 2017 Comrades Marathon, with its #CaptureComrades competition that ran on social media.

The competition was targeted at runners and supporters who were encouraged to share their photographs depicting the true essence of the Comrades Marathon on the CMA’s social media platforms. Facebook and Twitter garnered the biggest number of posts.

Tsogo Sun justly rewarded the four best posts with the sought-after complimentary vouchers at four of their signature hotels, The Sandton Sun, Southern Sun Elangeni & Maharani, Southern Sun The Cullinan and the Sunsquare Cape Town Hotel.

The winners (in no particular order) are:

    • Shahieda Thungo
    • Zinho Mokoena
    • Ian Macleod
    • Cassandra Barnes

CMA General Manager, Chris Fisher says, “We would like to thank Tsogo Sun for coming on board and celebrating the Comrades Marathon every year in true South African fashion. Our relationship with this world class hotel chain continues to grow. We are grateful for the immaculate way in which Tsogo Sun serves the needs of the Comrades Marathon community; of both our local and international athletes.”

Fisher adds, “Tsogo Sun is definitely the CMA’s home away from home!”

Tsogo Sun’s Director of Operations (KZN) Mike Jackson says, “Sponsoring the Comrades Marathon has been a natural extension of the Tsogo Sun brand. It is indeed an honour to partner with The Ultimate Human".
