Two Oceans Marathon 2009
The World's most beautiful marathon in Cape Town
The Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon has earned a reputation as the world’s most beautiful marathon. The first race was held in 1970 and saw 26 runners line up to face the unknown challenge.
Since then, the race has become a national institution and a firm favourite with local, upcountry, and international athletes.
The event attracts close to 26 000 participants across the ultra, half marathon and the fun runs and provides them with a mixture of breathtaking scenery, a gruelling test of fitness for both the elite and recreational runner, and an unrivalled race organisation and atmosphere.
Participants consistently vote it as one of the best in South Africa and it continues to attract strong fields and an increasing number of international entrants.
The event has become synonymous with the Easter Weekend in Cape Town, with the pre-race activities at the expo, family day, and fun runs on Easter Friday.
En-route entertainment on the race day provides fun, excitement, and a unique experience to runners, family, friends, and spectators alike.
Participants can choose from various distances – the scenic 56km ultra-marathon or popular 21km half-marathon and the 5km or 2.5km fun runs.
