Race Day Support Marquees
Complete Marathons specialize in Race Day Support. We have 3x Support Marquees along the route for all athletes competing in the 2017 Comrades Marathon. These marquees are strategically positioned along the route, allowing runner’s access to their pre-packed items and supplements (gels, protein shakes, snacks, sunblock, replacement socks, bandages …). Each Support Marquee allows athletes to replenish failing energy levels and get back on the road feeling stronger and ready for the challenging feat ahead.
The advantages of purchasing our Race Day Support Package include:
- Access to personal pre-packed race items.
- You can plan your race with added confidence, knowing the location of each Support Marquee.
- Not feeling weighed down by having to carry items whilst running.
- Exclusive ablution facilities! This is especially important for our ladies and these facilities are available for Complete Marathons Race Day Support Marquee runners only!
- Highly visible support marquees positioned strategically along the race route.

- The items will be placed into numbered, colour coded bags for each of the support marquees.
- The athlete is provided with an identity bracelet to assist our Crew in allocating the bag once the athlete approaches the marquee.
