The Ocean Basket Bay to Bay

The Bay to Bay is a 30km road race along the scenic coast from Camps Bay to Hout Bay, and back. This year there is no relay, but there is a 15km starting in Hout Bay.

What a great way to start off your running for the year – a coastal meander from Camps Bay to Hout Bay and back, with a few hills along the way just to make sure those muscles wake up after the festive season. Take part in the 15km if the full distance is a little too far. Special Oceans Basket prizes go to the “Kingklip” and “Queen Prawn” of the mountain.

Medals to the first 3500 finishers. Special awards to the “Kingklip of the Mountain” (the first male to teach the top of Suikerbossie on the way out – R500 Ocean Basket meal vouchers) and to the “Queen Prawn of the Mountain” (the female to reach the top of Suikerbossie on the way out – R500 Ocean Basket meal vouchers). To be eligible for these special awards, the runner must finish the race. Lots of lucky draw ocean basket vouchers to be won!

Venues and starting times: Maidens Cove, Victoria Road, Clifton, Cape Town; 30km: 6am; Hout Bay Harbour; 15km: 7:30am (Finish: field below the Glen Country Club).

Pre-entries, available on www.topevents.co.za, close at midnight on 30 December 2014. You can also enter at registration on Saturday 3 January, at Sportsmans Warehouse Rondebosch, Sea Point or Tygervalley, from 10am – 5pm. No entries on race day.
