The 93rd edition of the Comrades is run from Pietermaritzburg to Durban’s Moses Mabhida Staduim. This route is also referred to as the ”down run”
SABC Sport and SABC2 will broadcast the 90km race live on Sunday, 10 June 2018, from 05:03am till 18:00. The race will also be live streamed on the SABC2 YouTube channel.
In 2016, David Gatebe smashed a nine-year “down run” record when he took first place in the time of 5:18:19. One will fancy him to be one of the favourites come Sunday.
But there are other top athletes who’ll be looking to pip him this time around. Among them is Gift Kelehe, the 2015 Up Run champion. Another name to be on the lookout for is 2014 winner, Bongmusa Mthembu. And then there is Ludwick Mamabolo, a serial runner-up at the Comrades. Can he go one better? Sunday holds the answer.
