Entries open on 1 September 2017 and close on 30 November 2017. There will only be one entry window period for all athletes to enter whether they are former Comrades runners, Novices, Rest of Africa or International.
Entries will be limited to a maximum of 20,000 and no extensions will be granted. Entries will close on 30 November 2017 or once the 20,000 entries have been received (i.e. if 20,000 entries are received by 15 November 2017 then no further entries will be accepted). All current and potential Comrades Marathon runners that wish to run in 2018 are urged to take careful note of the entry process and the cut-off date.
