Media Accreditation Applications Are Now Open

Online media accreditation applications for the 2016 Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon, taking place on 25 and 26 March 2016, are now open.


  • Application deadline: MIDNIGHT ON SUNDAY, 14 MARCH 2016
  • Once you have submitted your application, you will receive a "Pending Approval" confirmation email with all your details.
  • We review each application individually and appreciate your patience. Once we have approved your accreditation, you will receive a confirmation mail, which will also indicate what you have received access to (this may differ from your original application).
  • Please print this confirmation and bring it with you to collect your media pack.

Note to freelance journalists, as well as any photographer requesting finish line access: Your accreditation application must be accompanied by a valid assignment letter from the news organisation or publication you represent. This can be emailed to media@twooceansmarathon.org.za.

There will not be a media conference this year. Instead, there will be a working media centre at the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon Expo (Cape Town International Convention Centre) between 23 and 25 March 2016. The media centre will be situated in the foyer, just outside the registration hall entrance.

Please contact Leonie at media@twooceansmarathon.org.za if you would like to arrange an interview or photo opportunity during this time.

We will not be able to facilitate late accreditation applications. Media without the necessary accreditation will not have access to the media truck or media centre on Race Day. 

If someone in your team requires accreditation, please forward this email to them, as applications are processed on an individual basis.

We look forward to hosting you at the world’s most beautiful marathon.
