Comrades Marathon: This event is held on the 29th of May 2011. The Comrades is the world’s greatest ultra-marathon, 89.28 km long. It’s a South African institution, internationally recognised for the body-sapping challenge it poses and the camaraderie it fosters among its thousands of participants. Runners run between the capital of the Kwazulu-Natal province, Pietermaritzburg and the coastal city of Durban. The race alternates annually between the “up run” from Durban and the “down run” from Pietermaritzburg. 2011 sees the run from Durban to Pietermaritzburg. Please click here for more information.
