With the increase in the half marathon field, we are putting on extra facilities for participants to make getting to the start and leaving the finish as hassle free as possible. Final details will also be in your event magazine and there will be a stand at the Expo with large maps and marshals to explain the various options to you. Remember the best way to avoid stress on race day, no matter where you park, is to ARRIVE EARLY!

THE START: There are four large school fields available within a 1km radius of the start.
- Above the Main Road between the start and the finish at UCT, you will find the following school fields: Westerford High School, SACS High & Junior School. These are within 500m of the start, they soon fill up, and there is major congestion on the M3 via Princess Anne Road to these points.
- Below the Main Road near the Newlands Cricket Stadium and Kelvin Grove Club, are the two Groote Schuur High School fields. They are approximately 1km from the start and there will be marshals to guide you to the two starting points.
- Groote Schuur High School, Westerford High School and SACS High & Junior Schools are available for parking at a cost of R30 per car. Please consider Groote Schuur as Westerford and both the SACS Schools fill up quickly. Take Liesbeek Parkway from either Cape Town or the Northern Suburbs; following the marshals and signage.
THE FINISH: The same shuttle service as in 2011 will run at regular intervals from the finish to all the schools. The service departs from the UCT Info Centre adjacent to the Indoor Sports Centre.
