Entries have opened for the 2010 Soweto Marathon.

The long awaited opening of entries for 2010 Soweto Marathon.

Known as People’s Race, the Soweto Marathon will be starting and finishing at the MTN Expo Centre in Nasrec.
The race is a township marathon that showcases the historical heritage and memorial places in Soweto, passing through the well known Vilakazi Street, where two Nobel Peace Laureates, Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu once lived.

The route also takes the runners past Morris Isaacs High School and the Hector Peterson memorial to name a few.

All entrants will receive a race t-shirt and a race medal on completion of the race, which is unique for such a large race and a major incentive, particularly for amateur runners.

In addition to the marathon, there will also be a 10km run/walk and a 5km Fun Run.
