Sanlam Cape Town Marathon

A prestigious and exciting sporting event in the beautiful Mother City.

We are a proud sponsor of the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon which welcomes runners of all fitness levels every spring. This year’s theme, African Champions Unite, embodies Sanlam’s mission to be an African champion that fosters financial inclusion and confidence. Although the 2022 route has changed slightly, athletes will still pass beloved landmarks as they journey through the Mother City. Race organisers are pulling out all the stops to show the world how to run a marathon to the African beat.

This year also marks the event’s first evaluation as an Abbott World Marathon Majors Candidate race. If the evaluation is successful, the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon will become Africa’s first Major in 2025.

Race week will start with the event’s expo and registration at the DHL Stadium in Green Point on 13 October. The 5 km and 10 km Peace Runs will take place on Saturday, 15 October, along with the 22 km trail run and 46 km trail marathon. The 42.2 km marathon will take place on 16 October.
