CT marathon soon a 'Must-Run' marathon like London, Berlin?

21 July, 02:14 PM

With just 60 days to go to one of Africa's most prestigious road races, the Cape Town Marathon organisers have promised an even more impressive world-class field and a faster course as they target top-flight international status. We spoke to ambassador and Springbok legend, Francois Pienaar.

In 2014, aiming for IAAF Bronze Label status, the organisers were delighted to become the only marathon on the continent to achieve Silver Label recognition after the first edition of the relaunched event.

The new-look 42.2km race will be held for the second time on 20 September 2015 as part of another weekend running festival, which also includes the Cape Town 10km PEACE Run, the Cape Town Peace Trail Runs (11km & 22km) and the Cape Town Community Fun Run, as this year the organisers target IAAF Gold Label status.
