the world's most beautiful marathon
Easter Weekend | 14 & 15 April 2017

starting line in Greenpoint. We were all after the same thing – to get through

work and live outside of the UK and see the world as always within reach.
It seems like an age since I booked my place at the Old Mutual Two Oceans
Half Marathon and, as the time nears, I am getting excited.
There are days where running is easy. No matter what my training
schedule requires I am willing to follow the program.
Hey, I am Darren Smith, a runner living in London and working for the British Government in an analytical capacity.
My name is Anet Schoeman. I’m a freelance journalist who gets high on the energy of passionate people and interesting topics.
I feel free again…
What a month! And, just like that, the Old Mutual Two Oceans Trial Run is four sleeps away!

Mutual Two Oceans Marathon is one of those truly South African running events
that you have to experience at least in your life… So why have I never been
able to participate in it?
