HALF MARATHON BALLOT APPLICATION PROCESS

The new ballot system is an applications process whereby prospective Half Marathon participants will have the opportunity to submit their application – or interest to enter - through the online applications system via the OMTOM website.

Blue Number & Yellow Number Holders

Blue and Yellow number holders will receive an exclusive, non-transferable invitation to enter and pay for their entry between 31 October and 10 November 2016. There are 1 000 entries available in this pool. Blue and Yellow number holders who do not meet the 10 November payment deadline, or fall outside of the 1 000 entry limit, will be added to the ballot.

All Other Runners

  • Step 1 – Apply: Runners interested in participating in the Half Marathon must submit their online ballot application between 1 and 10 November 2016. They must also update their details during this time. This application does not guarantee anyone of an entry, and runners’ chances of being drawn are equal, regardless of whether they submit their application on 1 and 10 November 2016.
  • Step 2 – Draw: Two audited computer-generated random draws will take place on:
    • 11 November 2016 for paid-up, licensed members of any South African running club
    • 18 November 2016 for the general public, as well as running club members whose names were not drawn on 11 November 2016.
    •  Step 3 - Payment: Successful applicants will receive entry confirmation emails, with instructions to finalise their payment:
      • SA Running Club members (6 000 entries available):
        • Confirmation notification:  11 November 2016
        • Payment window: 12pm on 11 November – 4pm on 17 November 2016
  • All runners (balance of entries):
    • Confirmation notification: 18 November 2016
    • Payment window: 12pm on 18 November – 4pm on 24 November 2016

Runners who do not meet the payment deadline will forfeit their entry.

Unsuccessful applicants will receive an email notification on 2 December 2016, inviting them to secure a charity entry, or to secure a substitution entry between 9 January and 6 March 2017.
