The Two Oceans Marathon dubbed Africa's biggest running event and the world's most beautiful marathon is run annually in Cape Town South Africa on Easter weekend.

Cape Town voted the event capital of the world in 2018, is home to abundant fauna and flora, one of the natural wonders of the world (Table Mountain), rich cultural diversity, significant historic buildings and sites and of course the most wonderful people of Cape Town - the Capetonians!

The Two Oceans Marathon boasts both a 56km Ultra Marathon as well as the famous half marathon attracting record numbers. There are also a number of fringe races, like a kiddies dash, fun run and a trail run on the Friday preceding the main races. For more info on these please contact us.

The Two Oceans Ultra Marathon

Cape Town’s most prestigious race is the Two Oceans Ultra Marathon, which celebrates its 53rd anniversary in 2022. It is a 56km course that takes athletes on a spectacular route around the Cape Peninsula, and it has often been voted as the most breathtaking course in the world.

The race is run under the auspices of the IAAF, Athletics South Africa (ASA) and Western Province Athletics (WPA).

To enter, you will need to qualify for this race. You can qualify from 1st July 2021 onward to TOM 2022. All standard IAAF (ASA in South Africa) affiliated marathons, and/or races longer than 42.2km are counted as qualifying races, provided that the course is officially measured and the race is officially timed. If you are running a 42.2km as a qualifying race, you will require a sub 5:00 time. For longer races, please refer to the TOM website for these qualifying times.

  • Distance: 56km (34.8 miles)
  • Date: Sunday 17th April 2022
  • Start time: TBC
  • Start venue: Main Road corner Dean Street, Newlands
