The assessment of the written applications has now taken place.
After much deliberation by the selection committee 26 people have been chosen to go forward to the next stage.
Those not selected will be notified as soon as possible and skype interviews will be arranged for those remaining in the process.

George Eadie, head of the selection committee, commented on how difficult it had been to make these selections as everybody who applied has put forward a strong case.
However in the end only 12 can partake and these decisions have to be made which we hope will be in the best interests of the Challenge.
Anybody not “succeeding” will be invited to run with the team in the Comrades Marathon and are welcome to reapply in the years ahead.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

All 35 have put themselves in the Arena.
