“Owing to a large number of requests and last-minute enquiries that we have received from both athletes as well as the interested public, we have decided to extend the deadline from midnight 5 September to the same time on Tuesday 4 October 2016. We urge anyone wanting to partake in any of the categories (42.2km, 21.1km or 10km) to register online before the revised closing date as under no circumstances will any extensions be granted thereafter,” Says the Chairman of the Soweto Marathon Trust Sello Khunou.

Now in its 23rd edition, the race fondly known as ‘The People’s Race’ was born out of the need to encourage South African’s to celebrate the country’s history, it’s people and it’s traditions and offers a great opportunity for even the casual runner to enjoy the 10km run come 6 November 2016.
