16 000 Entries will be made available for the half marathon, with entries opening on 5 November in phases.
In an effort to give runners a fair chance to enter, and alleviate the online entry system, new runners will enter an entry draw in January 2014.
The first 10 000 entries will have three opening dates with 1 500 entries reserved for charities and Internationals:
- 5 November: Blue Number Club runners (individuals who have run 10 or more Two Oceans) can enter (limited to 1 000 entries).
- 11 November: Licensed club members (even if they haven’t run the event before) can enter (limited to 5 500 entries).
- 14 November: Runners who have previously completed the Two Oceans Ultra Marathon, Half Marathon or Trail Runs can enter (limited to 2 000 entries).
- 22 January: The remaining 6000 entries are reserved for runners who have no previously run any Two Oceans events, or runners who missed out on the previous entry days. These runners can submit an application into an entry draw. [highlight]A random electronic draw on 23 January will select 6 000 entrants, who may proceed to pay for their entry.[/highlight]
