Nedbank is an official major sponsor of the 2016 Comrades Marathon.
The first Comrades Marathon took place on 24th May 1921, Empire Day, starting outside the City Hall in Pietermaritzburg with 34 runners. It has continued since then every year with the exception of the war years 1941-1945, with the direction alternating each year between Pietermaritzburg and Durban, the so called up & down runs.
The Nedbank Green Mile is the only official spectator point along the marathon route, offering Comrades supporters a perfect vantage point to view all the race action. It is located along Old Main Road in Kloof and is just 26km from the finish line in Kingsmead, Durban.
Entry into the Nedbank Green Mile Spectator Zone is free and festivities start at 8am.
This year the 89-km marathon starts in Pietermaritzburg and ends in Durban on 29 May 2016.
