Aderire Two Oceans Marathon
Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon is a 56 km / 35 mile ultra marathon held annually in Cape Town, South Africa on the Saturday of the Easter weekend. Self-proclaimed as “the world’s most beautiful marathon."
The 51st Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon will remain on the traditional route via Chapman’s Peak, Hout Bay and Constantia Nek (unless deemed unsafe by authorities in which case the Ou Kaapse Weg route (prior to 2004) will be used). The Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon is run under the rules of IAAF, Athletics South Africa (ASA) and Western Province Athletics (WPA).
The race is run against a backdrop of spectacular scenery through the Cape Peninsula. Since its inaugural edition in 1970, the event has grown into a mid-size competition. A very popular half marathon is also held on the same day as the ultra marathon. In 2007 the half marathon attracted nearly 11,000 entries, making it the biggest half marathon in South Africa.
Punti salienti del corsoThe race starts in Newlands, and follows a more or less circular route through Muizenberg, Fish Hoek, over Chapman’s Peak and Constantia Nek, and eventually finishes at the University of Cape Town campus. Runners will veer off left onto Noordhoek Road (Chapman’s Peak Drive) at the foot of Ou Kaapse Weg after passing through Sun Valley, and then head through Noordhoek and Hout Bay to Constantia Nek. The route is actually quite flat for the first 28 kilometers, and then starts to climb quickly as one approaches the start of Chapman’s Peak. From Hout Bay, the route climbs again to the highest point at Constantia Nek. Thereafter the route is undulating until the finish at Universty of Cape Town.
