A host of professional international stars and local contenders will target the race records at the Cape Town Marathon on Sunday. News24 Live spoke to some of the elite runners. Watch.

In just its second year, the Cape Town Marathon is close to reaching gold status. Organisers are confident the event will soon become one of the 'must-run marathons' on the international circuit. 

One of the international stars taking part this weekend that is creating a lot of hype is Japanese runner Yuki Kawauchi. He is able to maintain remarkably consistent form at the highest level, despite holding down a full-time job.

The versatile 28-year-old athlete, who is aiming for a place in the Japanese team for next year's Rio Olympics, has twice represented his country at the IAAF World Championships, as well as the World Half-Marathon Championships.
