More about #Racethecomradeslegends:

Cut-off time. Please note that you need to complete your run any time on Sunday, 14 June 2020 within your respective time zone. Other than that, you can run in your own time and at your own pace but you will have 24 hours to complete your selected distance.

Those opting to run the 90km race will need to plan their run wisely and ensure their safety. Please stock up on sufficient nutrition, water and energy drinks or plan ahead so that your course covers your nutrition and fluid needs on race day.

With respect to timing, your smart phone, smart watch, fitness watch or activity tracker is your personal ‘virtual timing chip’. Start the session and run your marathon. When you reach the distance for which you have entered, stop the session and simply, link your Strava, Garmin, Polar or Suunto account to your runner profile afterwards.

We also support session file import for GPX, TCX and FIT formats and will also accept manual entry of times recorded on any watch, so no one is excluded from participation and nothing is holding you back from being an official part of the race. You can also time yourself on any watch and do a manual time entry on the site.

Your time will be updated to the official ‘Race The Comrades Legends’ results for the distance you participate in. Please also note, that even though your watch or phone may deduct pauses which you may have taken during your session, we don’t. We measure from start to finish!

Race Numbers will be emailed to every entrant. Entrants are encouraged to print out the Race Number and attach it to their running kit on race day.

You also have the option of changing your race distance on the day if you feel your selected distance is too short or too long by logging into your profile.

Please honour the time limit for uploading of your race data which must be done by 11:59pm on 14 June 2020 to qualify for the finisher’s medal.

The results will also be fully available in the Comrades Marathon app where you can subscribe to finish notifications for the runners you want to follow. You will also receive interesting statistical results comparing your performance to selected Legends of the Comrades Marathon.

You will receive a medal once you have finished running your route for the entered distance in ‘Race The Comrades Legends’. You will receive an awesome virtual personalized medal by email that you can share on your social media platforms, as well as a special edition real “Race The Comrade Legends” medal.

You will be updated on the details of the medal distribution by email. You will also be emailed a certificate once you have finished your run for your chosen ‘Race The Comrades Legends’ distance; as well as the option to purchase a printed certificate after the event which will be sent with your medal.
