We are taking on the ultimate running challenge – to run the 90km Comrades distance EACH day consecutively – for the 9 days leading up to the epic ultra marathon – then culminating in the official Comrades Marathon on 10 June 20018. So… Running ten Comrades Marathons in 10 days! Ouch!

Just think – that’s a green number in 10 days!

South Africans have a special place for those intrepid souls that, as winter starts to set in begin the epic journey that is the Comrades Marathon. The 92nd running of an event, conceived to honor the millions of fallen soldiers who died tragically during the World War 1, is set to start 10 June 2018.

The 90km run, the start and end, alternating between Durban and Pietermaritzburg is central to the South African running scene. Each half of which would be considered as amongst the toughest 42.2km standard marathon in SA.

Please support us!

All for these three worthy causes! – Donate NOW!

NEW THIS YEAR – Be Involved and Run Part of Ten10

Many runners watched the daily slog Hazel and Tumelo endured in 2017 and wished they could be part of this cause in some way.  So, we are excited to extend an invite to all club runners to please join in by running one or more of the days or doing a day with a relay team.  Reach out and we will accommodate you as best we can!  You get to wear full club colors and be part of the media coverage and excitement of the event.  We will be giving all club members who join a complimentary t-shirt to show our appreciation for doing something greater than yourself.

The set dates for this little trot are 1 June – 10 June 2018 and we would love to have you involved by hosting your club Time Trial to assist in raising funds/dog food or for members of your club joining us in the event.
