Event Details

In 2014 the marathon route was altered one week before the event to a double loop on the half marathon as an emergency measure for some unforeseen reasons. The organising committee is proud to announce that from 2015 a new ‘old’ route for the marathon has been established. This route will revive more than two thirds of the very original historic Voet route and promises to be true to its slogan of “the toughest race with the warmest heart”. Back is the away start on the Elim road and warm bonfires to drive away the early morning chill and set your mood for the route ahead. This will test your endurance to the very end and is not for the fainthearted! However, nothing compares to the breath-taking beauty of our fynbos in full bloom and the panoramic views across the Agulhas plain. “You haven’t run a marathon, till you run the Voet!”
