We strongly advise you to run a qualifier so as to get a better seeding. Novices are welcome. Athletes who can’t walk an average of 8½ minutes per kilometre are strongly discouraged from entering.
Your qualifying times are used to seed you – this means faster runners in the front and slower runners at the back. If you do not supply a seeding time, you will start at the back. Seeding is based on a previous 10km, 15km or 21.1km.
Any officially timed and measured race, run after 1 July 2022 can be used as your qualifier. Unfortunately, you cannot run on your own and time yourself. Race Office will be conducting spot checks to verify qualifier information submitted.
Email email@example.com if you do not see your race on the TOM entry system.
The cut-off date to upload your qualifier will be advised once entries for TTOM 2023 have opened.
We kindly draw your attention to Rule 3, Rules for the Two Oceans Marathon Road Runs:
‘All Ultra and Half Marathon seeding batch start times are to be advised. The official seeding batch start times may be modified by the race organisers if required. Any such changes will be published on the website and communicated to participants’.
The organisers reserve the right to adjust the seeding of an athlete, regardless of their qualifying / seeding times submitted. Athletes shall be notified of any such change. Please note that TOM tries wherever possible not to downgrade an entrant’s seeding that may have originally been given. However, should there be reasonable reasons for adjusting an entrant’s seeding, this shall be entirely at TOM’s discretion.
