Not quite yet. But, he did send this tweet out:

@Maccanow: @andybaldwin, @ijoshcox hey boys don’t forget our #Comrades commitment for 2013. Going to be fun. I think that is the right word. Chat soon

The trio of McCormack, Bachelor star Andy Baldwin and runner Josh Cox likely made the deal this past weekend while in San Diego, Calif. attending Endurance LIVE.

The Comrades Marathon is an 89km (55.3-mile) run that takes place every year in May in South Africa. The challenging event is known as the oldest ultramarathon race in the world. The most unique aspect of the point-to-point race is the fact that it changes every year. The direction of the race alternates each year between the uphill run starting from Durban and the downhill run starting from Pietermaritzburg. The 2013 race that the trio has committed to will feature the uphill course.
