  • Ultra Marathon

The Cape Town Festival of Running 2015 is back and will take place on 26 and 27 September 2015.

Organised by Hewat Athletics Club, the Cape Town Festival of Running hosts a number of exciting running events that will take place in loop format along the picturesque Sea Point Promenade and Beach Road:
