Cape Town Marathon Cape Town Marathon

Live with Confidence.

Run for something. 16 and 17 October.

You might only cross the finish line on race day, but in your mind you’re already there.

This year’s Sanlam Cape Town Marathon is about running with confidence towards your goals. Because when you’ve done the hard work, you can live with confidence that you’re capable of achieving whatever you set out to do.

Sanlam Cape Town Marathon
Confidence rule 21

A goal is a dream with a deadline.

Go ahead and set your goals right here, right now!

This year, you’ve got three major race events to look forward to: the full 42.2km marathon on 17 October, and the 22km and new 46km trail run on 16 October.

You can participate in the 5 and 10km Peace Runs and 21.1km half marathon virtually. This means, whatever route you choose to run will transform into a virtual route, with our official app tracking you in real time. These will be held on the 16th of October – entry is free!

So whether your goal is to make it to the finish line of your first marathon or beat your best in a virtual run, putting down your goal is the first step to making it happen!

Run for something. Run for CANSA.

We all run for different reasons. This year, make yours count towards cancer awareness, research and treatment. Pledge your run to the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) on GivenGain and we’ll match your donations. T's and C's apply.
