2024 Comrades Substitution Withdrawals closing soon
March 26, 2024  
Runners who had entered the 2024 Comrades Marathon but will not be running on Sunday, 9 June, have three days left to withdraw their entry via the Comrades Substitution process.

With 74 days to race day, the Comrades Marathon Association’s (CMA) Entries Team is processing substitution applications so that aspirant #Comrades2024 participants will have another chance to secure their spot on the start line of this year’s Ultimate Human Race.

Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) Race & Operations Manager, Ann Ashworth says, “Athletes who have entered the 2024 Comrades Marathon will have the opportunity to withdraw from the race until 29 March 2024.  A 15% administration fee will be charged to successfully substituted athletes who will then receive an 85% refund of their entry fee.”

Entry slots that have been made available by withdrawing entrants will be offered on a first come first serve basis to individuals wanting to enter the event from 1 April 2024 through the Comrades website until 15 April or until the substitution entry cap has been reached.

Entrants making use of a substituted entry will pay the same entry fee as participants who entered during the initial entry period.

In order to withdraw your entry for substitution, please follow the process below:
•    Log into your 2024 Comrades Entry Profile via this link: https://www.easyreg.co.za/users/sign_in
•    On your entry dashboard, click the “I want to substitute my entry” button
•    Once clicked, your entry will be added to the substitution list
•    Please note you will have up until 29 March 2024 to reverse your substitution withdrawal by following the same process.

No late substitutions will be accepted.  No money or vouchers may be exchanged between athletes.  The entire substitution process is managed by the CMA Office.
Entrants who successfully substitute out of the race during the substitution period will NOT be allowed to reinstate their original entries.

The 97th Comrades Marathon will be the 49th Up Run on Sunday, 9 June 2024, starting at the Durban City Hall at 05h30 and ending 12 hours later at the HollywoodBets Scottsville Racecourse in Pietermaritzburg, covering a distance of 85.91km.
