March 31, 2018 @ 6:30 am - 1:30 pm UTC+2
The 49th edition of the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon takes place on Easter Saturday, March 32, 2018. Known as
the world’s most beautiful marathon the 56km Ultra Marathon has taken place every year since 1970.
It takes runners around the beautiful Cape Peninsula where they can experience lactic acid build-up in their muscles while they take in breathtaking views of mountains, valleys, oceans and beaches.
The Half Marathon sees some 16 000 participants (making it the biggest half marathon in South Africa), while 11 000 athletes tackle the 56km Ultra Marathon.
In addition to the main events, other events take place the day before (Good Friday). Approximately 6 000 runners – including toddlers and young children with their families – take part in various fun runs. Approximately 1 000 trail runners traverse the trails of the Table Mountain National Park. International participants get to run a scenic 5km route along the Sea Point promenade as part of the International Friendship Run.
