Johannesburg - North West Premier Thandi Modise on Saturday sent well wishes to the 80 athletes representing the province in the Comrades marathon this weekend.

"The team as our road running and ultra marathon ambassadors, carries with it our hopes and the aspirations of our youth and our rural communities in this race of endurance," Modise said in a statement.

The winner of the 2013 Two Oceans half marathon, Stephen Mokoka, and the 2001 winner of the Comrades Marathon, Andrew Kelehe, are both from the province.

The team is sponsored with transport and accommodation.

The 87km Comrades race will start at 05:30 in Durban on Sunday. Runners are expected to reach the finish line in Pietermaritzburg later in the day.
