Ultra Marathon entry changes

  • Ultra Marathon

2013 - Thank you for your ideas - you spoke and we listened.

  • Runners do not need to qualify before entering the race. Even though it is a prerequisite for participation, information can be supplied at a later stage.
  • Entries can be done without having renewed the provincial licence number as it can be completed later.
  • Athletic club membership is not optional but it can be done after entry.
  • Entries open on Thursday, 20 September 2012 (for the 2013 race).
  • Closing date for supplying qualifying and club details as well as manual entries is Wednesday, 20 February 2013 (online by 5 March).
  • Qualifying from 1 July onwards (no longer 1 September) in the year prior to participation.
  • The race will start at 06:30.
  • Runners with five or more medals can use the previous year’s race as their qualifier.
  • Blue/permanent number holders do not need to qualify, provided they have run in either of the previous two years.
  • Entry fee is R200 (Africa entry fee is R450, International R900).
  • No downgrades to the Half Marathon are allowed (only substitutions).
  • Upgrade fee is the difference between entry fee + R80 admin fee.
