18 & 19 April 2014
All substitutions, upgrades, downgrades and seeding changes must also be done by 7 March and detailed instructions on how to do these processes online are available on the website: www.twooceansmarathon.org.za. Runners will not be able to make any changes after the cut off date or at the Expo.
Those runners with a half marathon entry who are no longer able to participate are encouraged to make their entries available to others. The race office is appealing to runners to follow the substitution process and not to give their number to another runner as this can lead to disqualification for both parties and a ban from the event for one year. This process is encouraged with runners’ medical safety in mind.
There was an incident last year where a runner used another runner’s race number to run the half marathon and who then collapsed at the finish. The medical team thought they were dealing with the runner whose details were connected to the specific race number and obviously this can have serious medial consequences in terms of administering the correct treatment and contacting their family. PLEASE DO NOT GIVE YOUR NUMBER TO ANOTHER RUNNER WITHOUT SUBSTITUTING!
