Coronavirus statement: TOM 2020 runs on
6 March 2020
The novel Coronavirus has now reached pandemic status globally. As it stands, South Africa now has one confirmed case of COVID-19 in Kwa-Zulu Natal. National and local governments agencies, in accordance with the National Institute for Communicable Diseases protocols, are preparing for more potential cases, in the hope to slow down, and ultimately contain the spread.
The Two Oceans Marathon is currently not under threat, and there are as yet no travel restrictions in place. The medical team is fully informed as to the respective protocols should circumstances change. We are monitoring the situation on a daily basis, and will update the public regarding any changes to race status. We endeavour to have as safe a race as possible, and the health of the athletes, staff, supporters, and community at large is paramount.
The Two Oceans Marathon team, headed by Race Director Debra Barnes, as well as the NPC Board, remain committed to delivering a world-class event when we stage the first marathon marking the start of the second half of our centenary.
