Mini Marathon Series

Mini Marathon Series

5.6km and 2.1km

August 2015 to April 2016

A series of 7 Mini Marathons will be held between September 2014 and Good Friday 2015. Organised as a joined initiative between the Two Oceans Marathon Association and Western Province Athletics, these fun events are aimed at encouraging participation in physical activity within the communities where the Mini Marathons are organised.

The distances of 5.6km and 2.1km has been chosen to align itself with the Old Mutual Two Oceans Ultra and Half Marathons of 56km and 21km. Some participants of these community Mini Marathon Series will be invited to take part in the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon Fun Runs held at UCT on Good Friday, 3 April 2015.

The Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon is using the Mini Marathon Series to bring the Two Oceans Marathon brand and spirit to the communities of Cape Town. The series provides the opportunity to identify running talent and creates a platform for development of future South African top runners.
