When marathon is your favorite athletic discipline, you probably want an inspiring and encouraging setting for the challenging race. This is where The Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon comes as a great option. Considered to be “the world’s most beautiful marathon”, the Two Oceans Marathon is also Africa’s largest running event.
The event includes several distances including the scenic 56km ultra marathon, popular 21km half marathon and the 5km or 2.5km fun runs. At the same time, over 26,000 people register for the race with the breathtaking scenery and unforgettable views.
In 2020, the race will remain on the traditional route via Chapman's Peak, Hout Bay and Constantia Nek (unless deemed unsafe by authorities in which case the Ou Kaapse Weg route [prior to 2004] will be used).
It is traditionally held over the Easter Weekend, so plan your trip well in advance if you want to make the best of the run and vacation in Cape Town.
