Events in the Western Cape – April 2011

Two Oceans Marathon: This event takes place in Cape Town on the 23rd of April 2011. The marathon is run under the rules of IAAF, Athletics South Africa and Western Province Athletics. The Two Oceans marathon attracts some 20 000 participants who willingly take on 56 kilometers of open road and challenging mountain climbs. An interesting feature of the route of Two Oceans Marathon, is as the name indicates, it passes both oceans surrounding the South African shoreline – the Indian and Atlantic Oceans. It is therefore as stunning as it is challenging. Runners begin their journey in Newlands and head out towards Noordhoek. It’s then that the most spectacular portion of the marathon begins – Chapmans Peak. The Two Oceans Marathon route didn’t include Chapmans Peak for a few years because of the danger of regular rock falls that led to the closure of this mountain pass. However R156 million and a few engineering and construction feats later, Chapmans peak was reopened and was re-included into the Two Oceans Marathon route – much to the delight of regular entrants. There will be an Ultra Marathon which is run over 56 kilometres and a Half Marathon which is run over 21.1 kilometres. For more information visit
