Throwback to my first Two Oceans Ultra Marathon ~ 2015πŸ…

As far as ultras go, they don’t get much better than Two Oceans 😍. In fact it’s known to be the world most beautiful ultra marathon!
.
This 56km route takes you along an incredibly scenic route around Cape Town. My personal favourite part of the route is running up Champman’s Peak β›° a very hilly section with a huge drop off and a breathtaking ocean view to your side. These views always make climbing up that section a whole lot easier.

A Two Oceans silver medal is known to be one of the hardest to get within the road running and ultra running scene in South Africa. I managed to get a silver this run and that’s with my good running mate @kallie.burger.1 making us do 10 pushups before crossing the finish line πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ˜‚. This was almost as tough as the 56kms run before that point. Remember it as if it was yesterday.

A race I’d love to do at some point in the future and I highly recommend @2oceansmarathon as an ultra marathon for runners to target 😍 doesn’t get much more beautiful than this!
