Online entries for the 2017 Old Mutual Two Oceans Trail Runs will open at 10am (12km) and 11am (24km) on Thursday, 1 December 2016.

Runners can choose between the 12km route – a perfect race for trail novices – and the 24km run that caters for fit and experienced trail runners.

The entry limit is 1 000 participants in total, entries for the short route usually sell out within 10 minutes, while the 24km route takes about an hour.

The entry fee for the 12km is R685, and R840 for the 24km, which includes a limited-edition technical t-shirt from adidas, as well as the R100 SANParks levy. Runners who do not already own a RaceTec timing chip will be required to purchase one for R120 upon entering.

Both runs start at the University of Cape Town (UCT), from where athletes will access the lower slopes of Devil’s Peak and nearby forests of the Table Mountain National Park.

How to enter:
• Visit https://admin.twooceansmarathon.org.za/identify.aspx from 9am on 30 November 2016 to update your profile and “create” an entry. (Note that this does not guarantee your entry on 1 December.)
• 12km entrants may log in at 10h00 on 1 December to enter, while 24km entrants may log in at 11h00 to do the same.
• Credit cards or chip-enabled cheque / debit cards that have been activated for online purchases are accepted. Due to the high demand, EFT payments cannot be facilitated.
Entries will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Runners who update their personal profiles & create their entry by 30 November are not guaranteed an entry, and will still be required to access the entry system when entries open on 1 December to pay before the entry limit is reached.

The “pre-entry” procedure is in place to facilitate a faster processing of entrants through the entry system.
