The Comrades Marathon is a much longer and more difficult course than the Boston Marathon. Comrades has more cumulative elevation change than the comparatively flat Boston course (by far), and it traverses 55.9 miles through South Africa, as compared to the 26.2 miles of the Boston Marathon. In short, it is longer and harder.
