Two Oceans Marathon

Runner's World (UK) - - Race -

CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA, APRIL 15

Now in its 48th year, this 56km ul­tra in South Africa (there’s also a half marathon) is one of the most beau­ti­ful races in the world. Apart from a cou­ple of test­ing climbs up Chap­man’s Peak and Con­stan­tia Nek, the route is fairly flat, tak­ing you through the city and along the coast, and fin­ish­ing at the Univer­sity of Cape Town. If the run it­self isn’t enough to take your breath away, the stun­ning views of the In­dian and At­lantic Oceans cer­tainly will.

WHILE YOU’RE THERE…

Take a ca­ble car up Ta­ble Moun­tain (1,085m) for just £15. The views from the top over the city are mag­nif­i­cent. twooceans­marathon.org.za
