Cape Town Marathon

Lace up those running shoes for a race through the CBD


Runners will hit the streets of the Mother City for the 2013 Cape Town Marathon, a fast and furious race known for its flat terrain, unique city centre route and scenic views on Sunday, 22 September 2013.

Established in 2007, the Cape Town Marathon was intended both to provide novice and first-time runners with a feasible race – void of steep hills and unnecessary turns – and to aid more experienced runners in achieving fast times, so as to qualify for the Comrades and the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon.

Runners can either sign up for the 42.2-km or 10-km race, and youngsters can take part in the 4.2-km mini-marathon. The 42.2-km and 10-km race will dash from the starting line in Adderley Street at 6:30am. Participants in the 42.2-km race have eight hours to complete the race, and participants in the 10-km race will have two hours in which to finish, a time frame that gives even walkers enough time to complete both events.

The mini-marathon shoots off at 7:45am and hosts two age categories: youth (14 to 17 years old) and junior (18 to 19 years old). Do note, the mini-marathon is not an open event, and participants will receive invitations via the Western Province Athletes (WPA) office after qualifying through various channels.

If your fitness level doesn’t lend itself to long distance, then there’s a 5-km fun run and 5 x 4.2-km relay races taking place on Saturday, 21 September 2013 at the Green Point Common Fields. The relay race starts at 2:30pm, and the fun run kicks off at 4:30pm. Entry fees for these events have yet to be finalised.

Entries for the 2013 Cape Town Marathon

Entries for the race have been extended until Sunday, 15 September 2013. Participants can enter online, by emailing entries@ctmarathon.co.za or by sending a fax to (+27 (0) 21 699 0612).
