The Sanlam Cape Town Marathon was again awarded Gold Label status in 2018 by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF). Later that year it obtained the coveted Sports Industry 2018 Mass Participation Event of the Year award, was voted ‘Event of the Year’ by Runners World and was named as an official qualifier for the inaugural Abbott World Marathon Majors Wanda Age Group World Rankings. The 42.2km route highlights iconic landmarks and boasts spectacular views while bringing runners the ‘gees’ of Cape Town. The 2018 event attracted more than 23,000 runners from over 80 countries. This year the weekend-long running festival begins on Saturday with two Peace Trail Runs (22km and 12km) and a 5km Peace Run. This is followed by a 10km Peace Run and the classic 42.2km City Marathon, which both take place on Sunday. To enter, visit www.capetownmarathon.com.
