A few common questions answered:

  1. As part of the Red Love Train, will you qualify to start in the Charity Seeding Batch? As part of the Red Love Train, you will qualify to start in the CC Charity Batch (3rd from the front) regardless of your qualifying time if you raise the required R5000 (As per standard Comrades Marathon rules). You are welcome to start in A or B if your qualifying time permits but we are trying to stick together and enjoy the experience together BUT we totally understand and respect anyone who needs to whoop Comrades butt in a pair of red socks! We will need people at the finish line cheering us in before the cut off!
  2. What time does the Red Love Train hope to arrive at destination in Durban? We have a number of very strong and experienced Comrades runners within our group who will take responsibility of getting us across the line in time but we are aiming for between 11hr15min-11hr45min mark which gives us a small cushion and enables us all to run together regardless of level! There are no guarantees but this is what we are going for and are confident of achieving together. Can you imagine a the goosebumps when the Red Love Train arrives? I have goosebumps writing this!
  3. What commission charge is deducted from donations? 2% for bank transfers and 3% for credit card payments. These charges cover the costs of Quicket to operate our platform
  4. Can I choose which charity I wish to support? Our platform allows donations to be made to any one of the 6 charities we support so you are not restricted to raise funds for any particular one. The charities we suuport are: The Unogwaja Light Fund (Community Chest), The Pink Drive, The Sports Trust, Wildlands Conservation Trust, Starfish Foundation and World Vision.
