What’s on in and around Amanzimtoti

16 October - Goss & Balfe Sapphire Coast Marathon. This year’s marathon and half-marathon will be run and walked from Hutchison Park. Unfortunately, there will be no free train ride this year due to the floods in Amanzimtoti that has washed our railway line away in several places. Metro rail have informed us the repairs will take two to three months, however should it be repaired prior to the race we will include the free train ride to the start.

Amanzimtoti AC apologises to athletes, but this is beyond our control and hopefully you will all join us once again in celebrating our 40th year of road running and race walking. The race will take place and the 21km will go out to Illovo and back and the 42km will go out to Ilfracombe and back to Hutchison Park. Athletes will receive a medal and the first 2 000 early bird entries a short sleeve T-shirt for the 21km and a long sleeve T-shirt for the 42km. The race is a Two Oceans and Comrades qualifier. For further details contact Amanzimtoti Athletic ClubDes van Merwe, email vandermerwedesmond@yahoo.com or phone 071 361 1578.
