Comrades Marathon

We warn ourselves every year not to watch around cut off time lest we see those disappointed runners’ faces as they realise they’re not going to make it. Nevertheless, we tune in year after year to watch the world’s most gruelling endurance race. Spectators set up camp along the route and enjoy egging on their runner of choice. Across South Africa, TV viewers catch glimpses of our beautiful KZN Midlands and the weather almost never fails to impress.

Claude Moshiywa scored a win for South African runners everywhere as he became the first local runner to win the race in 21 years. Congratulations to Claude, our Rockwood guests and everyone else who participated!
