Following up on my previous post regarding attrition rates at Comrades Marathon 2013, here are the statistics I have gathered for medal allocations. There is some interesting history behind the Comrades Marathon medals. For reference, the medals are allocated as follows:

  • Gold medals to the first ten finishers in the men’s race and the ladies’ race;
  • Wally Hayward medals to finishers in under 06:00;
  • Silver medals to finishers under 07:30;
  • Bill Rowan medals to finishers under 09:00;
  • Bronze medals to finishers under 11:00; and finally
  • Vic Clapham medals to finishers before the final gun at 12:00.
