Luthuli, Mr BN to ask the Minister of Sports, Arts and Culture
What is the position of his department with regard to paying back the entrance fees paid by local Comrades Marathon entrants given that their applications will not be deferred to 2021 as is the case with international entrants?
The Comrades Marathon like other sport events which have been cancelled or postponed, remain the responsibility of the organisers. This includes all related liabilities and benefits accrued; be it entrance fees or any other obligations and or transactions between the organisers, the entrants (participants) as well as any other interested party. Naturally, the terms and conditions of engagement between the parties (organisers and entrants) would guide the management and resolution of these matters.
