Half Marathon Entries on Auction
A record field of 16 000 will line up in Newlands for the half marathon on Easter Saturday 7 April making it the biggest field ever, as well as the biggest half marathon in the country. Runners who missed out on an entry can still bid for one online as part of a major fundraising initiative for the Two Oceans Marathon Initiative (TOMI), the event’s charity foundation. Bidding for the 21 half marathon entries opened last Thursday 1 December. Entries start at R900 each and interested participants can post their bid online at www.oldmutual.co.za/twooceansmarathon.
The auction runs until Wednesday 21 December 2011, with one entry awarded to the highest bidder of each day. Winners are announced the day after each bid. Winning bids will also receive a R1 500 PUMA product voucher and their race entry includes an ‘A’ seeding. The top two successful bids will each receive an invite to Old Mutual’s hospitality area at the finish line.
