The lead pack in the men’s race has entered Camperdown to take on the challenging Umlaas Hill, in this year’s Comrades Marathon.

The Nedbank Running Club’s Edward Mothibi came through Camperdown neck and neck with defending champion Bongumusa Mthembu.

Comrades Marathon’s Eye In The Sky, Alec Riddle says, “These athletes certainly starting to stamp their authority on the race. Bongumusa Mthembu this is where he usually comes to the fore there he goes, running up front we’ve got Edward Mothibi and Justin Cheshire and probably now about 120 m behind is the Japanese, further 100 maybe even more to David Gatebe the wheels seem to be coming off there.”
