Two Oceans Marathon 2021: The World’s Most Beautiful Marathon

Celebrate Easter weekend at “the world’s most beautiful marathon” in this two day runner’s extravaganza. Two Oceans Marathon hosts a 21km half-marathon and a 56km ultramarathon each year in Cape Town of South Africa.

Both races feature slightly differing paths in a circular route that finishes at the University of Cape Town campus. Over 16,000 participants will compete in the Half Marathon while 11,000 more will take on the ultramarathon in the 49th edition of the run.

The Old Mutual sponsored event offers several additional races for those who won’t be competing in the official marathons. Experience scenic trail runs through the forests and take in South Africa’s inspiring vistas over the dazzling peninsula on Good Friday morning.

Kids of all ages are welcome to participate in two different fun runs for a pleasant family-oriented experience. Don’t forget to participate in the International Friendship Run and create lifelong relationships during a historic route past multiple famous landmarks.

“Choose from a variety of races to compete in the Two Oceans Marathon which provides a platform for expert and recreational athletes to come together as one during Easter weekend.”
