So grab your sword of Azeroth and practice your Xena war cry – ‘cus this year is gonna be epic!

How could we make a list of May’s biggest events and not mention The Comrades Marathon. It is probably considered as the ultimate marathon – reaching nearly 90km in distance – that attracts thousands of participants and ten times that in support and spectators. Make sure to mark this down on your calander for the end of May and show some love to some of the country’s most elite athletes and honour some of the world’s greatest long-distance runners.
