“What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.”

The Comrades Marathon Wall of Honour stands as an epic commemoration of the achievements of Comrades runners who have completed the gruelling journey between Durban and Pietermaritzburg.

Runners who have officially finished the Comrades journey are able to purchase their own blocks for perpetuity. These are mounted on an attractive plaque, which records the name, race number and status of the runner, which can be updated in later years.

Plaques are purchased by runners, family members or friends on their behalf to be presented as gifts for special moments such as birthdays, anniversaries, Comrades milestones or other occasions.

The Wall of Honour memorial blocks cost R550 per block, which includes the block, plaque and engraving as well as maintenance and upkeep of the block and site for posterity.

A runner who already has a plaque on the wall and who achieves their Green Number, Double, Triple or Quadruple Green Number can upgrade their plaque on the wall to reflect their esteemed Green Number status. The upgrade of the plaque costs R275. Only one block/plaque per finisher is permitted.
