OUR VISION

 To stage the biggest and best ultramarathon in the world and the most inclusive sporting event in South Africa.

OUR MISSION

The Comrades Marathon aims to achieve its vision through world-class race organisation, customer service and innovation, while retaining the ethos and traditions synonymous with the origins of the race in remembrance of protagonists in all conflicts including the struggle for freedom in South Africa.

OUR PURPOSE

To present an ultramarathon event annually between the cities of Pietermaritzburg and Durban that promotes unity and is comprised of a race for competetive athletes that is also an accessible, inspirational and attainable challenge for otherwise ordinary individuals.

OUR DRIVING PHILOSOPHY

People-focused and Runners First.

ACCOUNTABILITY

ALTRUISM

Selfless concern and contribution towards the well-being of others, including charitable acts and responsible corporate citizinship.

DIGNITY & RESPECT

The manner of treatment or care, that ethically supports and promotes, and does not undermine, a person’s inherent humanity and self-worth, regardless of any difference.

INTEGRITY

Strict adherence to a moral code aligned with ethics, attitudes and beliefs that is reflected in whatever one thinks, says and does, that is consistent inside and out, and whether anyone is watching or not.

TRANSPARENCY

The quality of openness, honesty and scupulousness to bear public scrutiny, lack of hidden agendas and conditions, accompanied by the full disclosure and availability of information required for collaboration, cooperation, and collective decision-making.

UNITY & DIVERSITY

The motto on the SA National Coat of Arms which is drawn from the /Xam expression !ke e: /xarra // ke which literally means diverse people unite.
