Comrades runners have woken up to some good news this morning. After completion of the official route course measurement conducted by the Comrades Marathon Association’s (CMA) Route Portfolio, Road Traffic Inspectorate, Msunduzi Traffic and the Department of Transport, CMA Race Director, Rowyn James has confirmed that the official race distance of this year’s Comrades Marathon Down Run is 89.885km.

This means that Comrades runners will effectively run 299m shorter than they did in the 2018 Down Run, mainly as a result of the current roadworks.

James has also confirmed the cut-offs for this year’s race. There are 6 cut-off points along the route:
