Entries are now open for the 33rd Johnson Crane Hire Marathon hosted by Benoni Harriers. This popular event presents the ideal setting for the first marathon of the year. The route is a double lapper and relatively flat. For those still easing into the year, there is a 21km as well as a 10km and 5km fun run. The 10km race will be a CGA Championship race this year. For the first time, the 21km and 42km events will be timed by ChampionChip. All 42km results will automatically be sent to Comrades as a potential qualifying time.
The Pick n Pay Marathon is run on 8th February 2015 from Saheti School in Senderwood. The race consists of a 42.2km Full Marathon, a 21km Half Marathon, an 8km and a 4km race. The marathon consists of two laps that encompass Edenvale and Bedfordview, whilst the 8km and 4km race meanders around Senderwood.
The ever popular Carnival City Macsteel National Classic Cycle Race will be held as usual on the last Sunday in February, two weeks before the Argus.

The event promises to be better than ever. It will comprise a new 164km route for the Elite Men, 125Km for Licensed Vets (30 - 49) & Licenced Juniors and the customary route for the 103km and 65km road races. Licenced Under 16 Boys will ride 103km. Race organisers receive no personal financial benefit from this event. All profits go to Rotary Community Projects, the Rotary Foundation, Germiston Wheelers Charity Projects and the development of amateur cycling in South Africa.
The 2015 campaign is centered on the CMA's vision of an all-inclusive Comrades Marathon, with the slogan: "Be Part of It - Bamba Iqhaza". The 90th edition of the race will be run on Sunday, 31 May 2015. The 'up-run' will start at the Durban City Hall at 05h30 and end 12 hours later at the Oval Cricket Stadium in Pietermaritzburg, covering a distance of 87km.
