?In little more than a month, the rubber meets the road for Comrades runners, in their quest to conquer the 95th Comrades Marathon, a Down Run from Pietermaritzburg to Durban.

The Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) has confirmed that the following road closures and alert notification which will be effective over Comrades race weekend, starting around midnight on Saturday 27th until 21h30 on Sunday, 28th August 2022.

 

CMA Race Director, Rowyn James says, “Due to the massive roadworks on the N3 for the first 30km of the race from Pietermaritzburg to Cato Ridge, if you are travelling to the start from Durban on the morning of the race you are advised to leave extra early (by latest 3am), perhaps an hour earlier than you would normally do, as the sheer volume of traffic will definitely lead to congestion and a substantially longer travelling time. Without any accidents or vehicle breakdowns, you can factor in the journey taking you one hour and thirty minutes.”

 

Comrades supporters are advised to please take note that the usual spectator spots and associated parking areas at Lynnfield Park, Umlaas Road and Camperdown will be out of bounds on race day due to the roadworks. Cato Ridge will be the first available spot where supporters can gather and see the runners. The road closure schedule is as follows:
