Half Marathon

It is not compulsory to run a half marathon prior to entering, but we strongly advise you to do so 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 run after 1 July 2019.

The provisional cut-off date for all seeding updates is 9 March 2019. Any change to this cut-off date will be advised as soon as possible.

We kindly draw your attention to Rule 12, Collection of athlete’s race pack: applicable to all events

If and when instructed by the Disaster Management team, 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.

The start times for the various seeding batches will be updated as soon as these are finalised for TOM 2020.
