Demand for Comrades Marathon media accreditation has increased to the extent that it has become increasingly necessary to limit access to these facilities. We sincerely regret that we have no option but to apply strict limitations on the number of accredited journalists. Priority will be given on the basis of national circulation figures, i.e. major circulation daily newspapers, digital media and photographic agencies, radio stations and CMA official photographers.
Media Accreditation will be much more stringently allocated than in the past, and under no circumstances will we process applications for Media Accreditation during the week prior to the race.
Note that we will be strictly limiting the number of accredited journalists from any one respective organisation.
Race Day Accreditation and allocation of access to facilities will be issued solely at the discretion of the Comrades Marathon Association. The CMA reserves the right to make all race day media facilities and area assignments.
The Media Accreditation Application is available at https://media.comrades.com/ and must include a digital photo. Applications close on Friday, 5 August 2022.
Media Accreditation must be collected from the Media Centre, Comrades Expo, Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre (Durban ICC), Durban, during the following days between 10am and 5pm: Thursday, 25 August 2022; Friday, 26 August 2022 and Saturday 27 August 2022.
Note – The Media Centre will be closed for the duration of any Official Media Conferences. Date(s) and Time(s) of the official media conferences will be advised and posted at the Media Centre.
NB – MEDIA ACCREDITATION WILL NOT BE POSTED, NOR WILL IT BE ISSUED ON RACE DAY.
NO NEW APPLICATIONS WILL BE PROCESSED AT EXPO.
Media Facilities at the Finish will be located at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban. It will be available from 7am to 6pm and will provide the following:
There will be no access to runners on the Finish Line. Gold Medallists and others will however be brought to the Media Interviewing Facility for a Media Conference on Race Day.
CMA personnel will be on hand to assist Members of the Media. Delaine Cools will be in charge of managing the Media Facilities. The Chairperson, Mqondisi Ngcobo; the Vice Chairperson, Les Burnard and the Race Director, Rowyn James are the official spokespersons for the Comrades Marathon Association.
Date(s) and time(s) of any Pre-Race Media Conference(s) will be advised in due course.
Facilities will be available at the Media Centre of the Comrades Expo, Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre (Durban ICC) from Thursday, 25 August to Saturday 27 August 2022 including telephones, wifi and information.
