Old Mutual Two Oceans Ultra and Half Marathon

PLEASE NOTE: THE ULTRA AND HALF MARATHON ENTRIES ARE FULL.

In 2015, due to the fires in the area, the ultra route will pass over Ou Kaapse Weg and not Chapman’s Peak.

Dubbed “The World’s Most Beautiful Marathon”, this ultra is another running bucket list item and runners are rewarded with stunning views of the two oceans that are said to meet at the Cape of Good Hope. The 2015 route will remain on the traditional Chapman’s Peak route (unless deemed unsafe by authorities), which will no doubt be lined by supporters as always

Starting times: 21.1km: 6am; 56km: 6:30am.

Pre-entries for the 21.1km will open on 5 November for Blue Number Club runners (limited to 1 000 entries), 11 November for Licensed club members (limited to 5 500 entries), and on 14 November for runners who have previously entered (limited to 2 000 entries).

Pennypinchers Cairnbrogie Easter Trail Run, organised by The Pennypinchers AR Team

Cairnbrogie Farm has been owned by the Hill Family since 1972 and is situated on the cliffs above the Indian Ocean, between Harkerville and Kranshoek. Don’t be fooled by its dairy farm exterior, for this is an area made for adventure.

All trail running routes will follow cattle paths, via fynbos filled kloofs. A fisherman’s path will take runners within a hairs breadth of the ocean while single tracks, dams and forested sections will provide welcome shade from the African sun. Runners are required to carry their own water.

While the longer route will challenge experienced trailites, the shorter routes are great fun and encompass the highlights of the long route. The Kiddies Farmyard Adventure Trail promises fun for all the family.

Unique Fact: Spot whales far below.

The long route is limited to only 100 runners, the short route is strictly for 12 years and older, and prizes will only be awarded to finishers of the 5km Fun Run who are under 12-years-old.

Starting time: 18km, 12km & 5km: 8.30am.

Other events includ: MTB on 3 April & surfski on 4 April.

Pre-entries, available at www.entrytickets.co.za, will open on 15 February. They will close on 2 April 2015. Entries will be available on race day, subject to availability, from 7:30am.
