CFA Society South Africa Bay to Bay Road Race
Jan 19 @ 5:30 am
The Bay to Bay event has been in existence for more 43 years and for the last 6 years has been hosted by the TOPFORM Athletics Club.
The 2020 event will be called the CFA Society South Africa Bay to Bay Road Race after the sponsor and will include a 5km fun run as part of the main activities.
Traditionally it has been run over a classic distance of 30km with its start and finish in the Camps Bay area. The event starts in Camps Bay and proceeds over the long climb at Llandudno into Hout Bay and turns at the halfway point at the famous “World of Birds”, and returns along the same route over the infamous Suikerbossie Hill to finish at the Maidens Cove recreational area.
In recent years a 15 kilometer event has been added starting in Hout Bay harbour, as well as a 5km fun run.
The race has grown over recent years from 2500 participants to 5000 across all distances, this is mainly due to the amazing views and race “gees”, plus this event has also for many years been the main event in January on the Cape Town road running calendar, as its an early tester for runners who have their sights on the TWO OCEANS and COMRADES marathons.
This is an online entry only event and entries are limited to 5700. Runners can choose to enter the 30km, 15km or 5km fun run. Medals to first 5500 finishers.
Prizes to all top finishers in the 30km & 15km races. Prizegiving at 10h00.
