Two Oceans Half Marathon

23 Apr 2011 to
two oceans marathon


Old Mutual Two Oceans Half Marathon is the shorter “brother” of the World Famous Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon Ultra race. The 21kms race is a very popular option for those wanting a shorter distance and not so many hills and in recent years the Half Marathon has grown in popularity and often sells out early. The races take place in Cape Town, South Africa over Easter weekend and they’re suitable for runners, families and friends. Opportunities to extend and holiday in South Africa before returning home are endless.

The natural beauty of Cape Town and its fantastic diverse culture makes it one of the most attractive cities in the world. Cape Town boasts beautiful coastline and beaches. Impressive Table Mountain right in the heart of the city. The restaurants are world class, and so are the wines. There is so much to see and do in Cape Town. The average temperature of 23 degrees in April makes the climate perfect to combine ‘The World’s Most Beautiful Marathon’ with a fascinating holiday in South Africa.

Half marathon route

The Two Oceans half marathon route starts along the same route as the Ultra distance for a period of time, before turning left and cutting across country and then finishing along the same final section as the full Ultra distance.

The Half Marathon Route is quite flat for the first 10 kilometres, and then starts to climb quickly as one approaches Southern Cross Drive. From Rhodes Drive it is undulating until the finish at UCT.
