Event Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon in Cape Town

Location Various | Cape Town, Various Locations in Cape Town, Western Cape,
Type Public Sports Events
Description Hit the road running in 2015 and prepare to take part in the ultimate test of endurance with a breathtaking view! The Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon, which is arguably the world`s most beautiful sporting event, invites local and international competitors to push their bodies to the limit on Easter Saturday, 4 April 2015 in Cape Town (other subsidiary runs will take place on Good Friday, 3 April 2015). As in past, the gruelling 56-km run (the ultra marathon), alongside the 21-km half marathon and the various associated trail and fun runs, draws sporting enthusiasts from across the globe to the scenic Cape Peninsula for a unique and trying athletic experience. Inaugurated in 1970, the competition has developed into the biggest and most popular road race in the nation, with 11, 000 runners taking part in the ultra marathon and 16, 000 runners taking part in the half marathon. During its 45-year tenure, the ultra marathon has seen over 50 South Africans (across both men`s and women`s categories) take the winning title, along with almost a dozen Russians, half a dozen Basothos and half a dozen Zimbabweans. Though, this major sporting event is not just for the serious competitor; the Two Oceans Marathon`s offshoots cater to all types of runners and levels of experience: there are 10-km and 22-km trail runs, which take participants along the lower slopes of Devil`s Peak and through the forests above the University of Cape Town (UCT). The two trail runs are great for both beginners and experienced runners and offer a challenging experience with steep ascents and descents. A series of fun runs and the International Friendship Run also take place at the UCT rugby fields and in the city centre, respectively, for those who want to get into the spirit of things without going the extra mile or ten. But it`s not only about physical exertion, this major event will also play host to an annual expo where sporting enthusiasts can get the lowdown on hot running trends, apparel and supplements (the legal kind) and the latest news on outdoor adventure sports, tours and much more.
