  • Fun Run Series

A series of 12 Fun Runs will be held between now and Good Friday 2014. 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 runs 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 Fun Runs will be invited to take part in the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon Fun Runs held at UCT on Good Friday, 18 April 2014.

The Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon is using the Fun Run 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.
