Release 4: ENTRIES FOR SA'S BIGGEST HALF MARATHON HAVE BROKEN ALL RECORDS
Entries for the 2012 Old Mutual Two Oceans half marathon, South Africa’s biggest half marathon, opened on Wednesday 9 November 2011 and 8 000 entries were received in just 2 days. As at 14 November over 11 000 runners have entered the half marathon and less than 5 000 entries are still available.
The half marathon, together with the 56km ultra event, takes place on Easter Saturday 7 April 2012, and is expected to attract yet another record field if this year’s figure of over 30 000 entrants across all the distances is anything to go by.
The Two Oceans Marathon Association has increased the half marathon field to 16 000 and runners are advised to enter as soon as possible. It is expected that all remaining slots will be snapped up in record time before the end of the month.
Entries for both the ultra and the half marathon close on 7 March 2012 or when 16 000 entries for the half marathon and 11 000 for the ultra marathon are reached – whichever comes first.
Entries for the trail runs will open on 18 January 2012, and trail enthusiasts wanting to secure their spot in this popular event will need to enter without delay, as entries sold out in less than a day for the 2011 event.
Participants are encouraged to enter online at www.twooceansmarathon.org.za Alternatively, entry forms can be downloaded from the website.
