The Comrades Marathon Association has deferred the date for entries in order to allow for the process to be reviewed.

Over the past decade, entries for the world famous ultra-marathon opened on 1 September.

But not this year.

The Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) has announced that it has deferred the date for entries in order to allow for the process to be reviewed.

CMA chair Cheryl Winn says the entire entry system will be re-evaluated, from qualifying times to entry fees, and everything in between.

She says the review is to ensure that the process is smoother, more open, and as fair as possible.

The 2019 Comrades Marathon will be the 94th edition of the world-renowned event.

We know that we are going to reach our target number, so we, therefore, know how many runners we'll have next year.

Cheryl Winn, Comrades Marathon Association Chairperson

We don't that build-up that we've had to have in the past.

Cheryl Winn, Comrades Marathon Association Chairperson

We're going to have a complete review of our entry systems.

Cheryl Winn, Comrades Marathon Association Chairperson
