The finish of the 2017 Comrades Marathon will be at the home of the Golden Horse Casino, the Scottsville Racecourse in Pietermaritzburg on Sunday 4th June 2017. There will be ample space for all the clubs at this venue and for the first time, we will be offering a tiered pricing structure depending on your positional choice of Club Tent Site. We are also pleased to advise that the sizes of the sites are larger than previous years. Club tent sites have been demarcated and clubs may book these at a cost ranging from R600.00 to R4150.00 per site (Ex VAT) depending on Requirements.

Once your online booking is processed, you will receive an invoice. Your site/s will only be reserved based on full payment received, within 48 hours of invoice date. If payment has not been made within this time period, your site will become available for re-purchase.

Please familiarize yourself with the layout of the Comrades Marathon 2017 finish at the home of the Golden Horse Casino, the Scottsville Racecourse. You can familiarize yourselves with the new finish and positions of the 4 club tent site options available. There will also be an option for catering when you book your site. If you opt YES, a menu (fast food type) and drinks order (beers and cold drinks only) will be sent to you once all sites have been sold. These orders must be submitted and paid for by FRIDAY 12th of MAY 2017. If we do not receive your orders by the 12th of  May 2017 we will not be entertaining any further catering and drink orders/booking forms.
