International/overseas Entrants

International runners are encouraged to comply to the same requirements as South African runners (to have run a qualifying marathon or ultra marathon in the months leading up to the race). For this reason we have extended the qualifying period to any race since the last Two Oceans Marathon. In the unlikely event of International runners unable to run a qualifying marathon within this period they may enter the race, but they will start at the back.

Qualifying Standards

In order to qualify to run the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon, runners must have completed the distance indicated below in under the time next to the distance:

DistanceTime
42.2 km sub 5:00
50 km sub 6:30
56 km sub 7:00
90 km sub 12:00
100+ km sub 13:30

Loyal Previous Runners

Runners with five or more Ultra Marathon medals can use the previous year’s race as their qualifier.  Blue/permanent number runners in the Ultra Marathon do not need to complete a qualifying race, provided that they have participated in the past two years' OMTOM Ultras.
