The 94th Comrades Marathon will be broadcast live on SABC Sport, thanks to an agreement that was reached between ASA and the SABC.

The Comrades Marathon has been televised by the SABC since 1981, dedicating 12-13 hours of live coverage to The Ultimate Human Race annually, as well as post-race highlights.

CMA Chairperson, Cheryl Winn thanked ASA and the SABC for coming together to make sure that the 2019 Comrades Marathon is broadcast, saying, “The Comrades Marathon represents the social fabric of South Africa and the annual televised broadcast of The Ultimate Human Race is something that the entire nation traditionally looks forward to.”

Winn adds, “We deeply appreciate the way in which ASA and the SABC salvaged the situation to ensure that the Comrades Marathon is enjoyed by everyone, including our supporters, spectators as well as our television and radio audiences across South Africa.”
