Cape Town Marathon - Gold Label
Sanlam Cape Town Marathon is Africa’s only World Athletics Gold Label Status Marathon. It is managed by a partnership between WPA, the City of Cape Town and ASEM Running and is endorsed by two of South Africa’s sporting greats, Elana Meyer and Francois Pienaar. The Cape Town Marathon has a vision of becoming one of the rare World Marathon Majors. We believe that the Mother City, Cape Town, is the ideal host for an iconic African city marathon that showcases the continent’s remarkable talent for long-distance running.
Otter - South Africa's Grail of Trail
Marathon distance. Four river crossings. Over 2600 meters of elevation gain and 11 significant climbs. This is what makes The Otter - Grail of Trail. Participants are transported to the Start of the Otter Run at Storms River Rest Camp on the morning of race day. The Cut-off for an official finish of the Otter Run is 8 hours and of the Otter Challenge is 11 hours. There are 3 cut off points en route where participants failing to arrive on time will be removed from the course. The Otter is run along a section of near-pristine coastline and we want to keep it that way.
