The Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) has confirmed that it is looking into concerns raised by runners in this year’s 96th Comrades Marathon, held on Sunday, 11 June 2023.

CMA Chairperson, Mqondisi Ngcobo says, “The CMA Board has noted runners' concerns. We will be conducting Race Organising Committee portfolio debriefs in the coming weeks. We will look at all aspects of the race, from the Start and Route to the Finish.”

Ngcobo adds, “Our race has always been about putting Runners First and once we have finalized our debriefs, taking into account some of the concerns that our runners have raised, we will implement those recommendations which are aimed at improving our race offerings in 2024 and beyond."

The 96th Comrades Marathon has been lauded as having the seventh highest finisher rate in the history of the 102-year old ultramarathon.
