Comrades Marathon Guaranteed Entry + Substitutions & Withdrawals

Comrades Marathon Guaranteed Entry + Substitutions & Withdrawals


As Comrades Guaranteed Entries for 2020 have sold out on 01 March 2020. Runners wishing to run Comrades Marathon 2020 can now substitute with withdrawing Comrades runners, below is the Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) process you must follow for Comrades substitutions and withdrawals



The Comrades Marathon Association will accept substitutions for the 2020 Comrades Marathon during the window period starting on 16th March 2020 and ending on 16th April 2020. No late substitutions will be accepted.

An Admin Fee of 15% of the entry fee will be deducted by the CMA from the withdrawing athlete. The CMA will only refund all withdrawing athletes after the substitution period and only if the substitution was successful.

There will be no money or voucher exchange between athletes.

Athletes will be able to withdraw from the 2020 race from 13 December 2019 up until 16 April 2020.

Substitution entries will be issued on a 1st come 1st serve basis.

The Substitution Fee of R200 will apply over and above the normal entry fee for the athlete taking up the available entry.


Once the substitution period opens on the 16th of March 2020, athletes will be able to do a normal entry online as long as there is an available entry. These entries will be made available by athletes who have withdrawn from the race. Please note this will be on a 1st come 1st serve basis.


You will also be able to withdraw by logging into your 2020 Entry Profile

  • On the website click Login and then click Entry Profile Update or click HERE.
  • Once you have logged into your Entry Profile scroll down and select the Withdraw button

Once your entry has been substituted the CMA will then only process your refund after 16th April 2020. If your entry has not been successfully substituted you will forfeit your entry fee and not be refunded.

Please note once you have opted to withdraw from the race under no circumstances will you be able to re-enter the race.
