Conceived by a World War I veteran, the Comrades Marathon, now the oldest and largest ultramarathon in the world, was intended to be a tribute to those who had fallen in the war, by testing the resolve of the men (the race was only officially open to men for its first 54 years) who ran it.
The race is approximately 90K and runs from Pietermaritzburg to Durban in the even-numbered years and from Durban to Pietermaritzburg in the odd-numbered years. The 2022 race is a "DOWN RUN” starting at the City Hall in Pietermaritzburg and finishing at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.

You can submit the qualifying time for any race run between 1 September 2021 and 12 July 2022. Once your entry is confirmed, if you are unable to meet the qualifying timing for any reason before the deadline, your registration will be forfeited and no refund will be due.

After you have blocked your accommodation and paid your non-refundable entry fee, Active Holiday Company will contact you with a registration form that you will need to fill in. 

Q.4 Till when can I book a spot with Active Holiday Company? Open or Close

We have a limited number of Comrades Marathon entries and space is available to book till 30 June 2022 or until the entries last. We expect that the entries will be taken much before the last date since we have a pretty small number.

Yes, if you have the qualifying time, you can opt for the 'Race entry and timing chip package' at INR 25,500/- OR AED 1250

Q.6 I am a solo traveller, is it possible for me to find someone to share my room with? Open or Close

We have several single runners interested in sharing a room with another runner and, wherever possible, we try to pair up people who have requested rooms on twin share. However, please keep in mind that this is not a guarantee and in some cases you might be required to take a single supplement. If you have a friend who is already on the group you'd like to share your room with please let us know your preference at the time of making the booking so we can pair you together.
