Cape Town Marathon 2023: One of World’s Most Stunning Races

Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities in Africa—and possibly the world. Located on the southern tip of South Africa, Cape Town is nestled between the ocean and the lumbering and aptly-named Table Mountain. Is there a better way to see it than running a race there?

The Sanlam Cape Town Marathon  (42.2km)  is the largest marathon in Africa. A prestigious global city race open to a range of running enthusiasts from elite athletes to social runners.

Your experience at the Cape Town Marathon 

Running the marathon is a unique way to experience the gorgeous highlights and the vibrant spirit of one of Africa’s most visited and most celebrated cities.  It is an ideal race both for athletes who aim to achieve fast times and for first-timers who want to finish their inaugural marathon.

Marathon Route

The marathon starts a stone’s throw from the ocean, winds its way around the massive Table Mountain Nature Reserve, then back through the city. The race’s entry is capped, so make sure you plan ahead if you want to run it. Only 8,000 runners are allowed to compete each year.

The route is wheelchair-friendly, and the 7-hour cut-off time can accommodate the social runner.
