CAPE TOWN MARATHON ACCOMMODATION TRAVEL PACKAGE

The Sanlam Cape Town Marathon is Africa’s only IAAF Gold label status marathon. Over eighty countries participated in last year’s Sanlam Cape Town Marathon, representing 10% of the marathon entrants.. It is in one of the World’s most beautiful cities and offers an opportunity to partake in Trail runs and Peace runs over the same weekend.  Make the most of your Cape Town Adventure!

Taking place this year on Sunday 18 October, the classic 42.2km city marathon is the highlight of a weekend-long running festival that begins the day before with two Peace Trail Runs (22km and 12km) and a 5km Peace Run. Shortly before Sunday’s marathon, a 10km Peace Run takes place.

Running the marathon is unique way to experience the gorgeous highlights and the vibrant spirit of one of Africa’s most visited and most celebrated city.  It is an ideal race both for athletes who aim to achieve fast times, and for first-timers who want to finish their inaugural marathon.  The route is wheelchair-friendly, and the 6 hour 30 minute cut-off time can accommodate the social runner.

In 2017 the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon won the AIMS Green Award.

Its Run4Change legacy programme has raised in excess of R2,5 million for over 50 charities. They have trained up 150 “development athletes” (up-and-coming stars) and enabled 800 disadvantaged kids to enter events free of charge. Co-hosted and supported the SACANRUN shoe drive which has distributed over 460 pairs of shoes to disadvantaged athletes in SA.
