THE 1City Relay and 42.2km Race has announced that the traditional route will be changing this year.

The event will include the 42.2km marathon and relay race and a 5km family run which will start and finish at City Hall in Port Elizabeth on Sunday.

The marathon and club/corporate relay will no longer run between Port Elizabeth and Uitenhage, but will follow a circular route through the streets of Walmer, Pari Park and Mount Pleasant.

The 1City Relay race includes two distances, namely the 42.2km marathon and club/corporate relay which starts at 6:15am, and the 5km at 7am which will follow a circular route back to City Hall.

The entry fee for the marathon is R100.

However, EPA-registered participants between the ages of 60 and 69 will pay only R50.

Runners over the age of 70 will receive free entry.

The temporary licence, required for the 42.2km only, is R30.

The club, social and corporate team fee is R250, and R20 for the 5km family run.

Registration and late entries will take place at the Westbourne Oval from 16:30 to 19:00 on Friday and from 5am on Sunday.
