We strongly advise you to run a qualifier so as to get a better seeding. Novices are welcome.
To have a successful Half Marathon event we strongly advise you to train for and run at least a 3h15 Half Marathon.
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.
In order for you to successfully complete your Half Marathon, we strongly advise you to train for and run at least a 3h15 Half Marathon.

Seeding batches for TTOM 2024: Kindly note: Once the number of entrants has been finalised, batch sizes and, consequently, seeding tables will then be finalised and published here.
We kindly draw your attention to Rule 3, in this section: Rules for the Totalsports 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 TTOM 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 TTOM’s discretion.
