Cape Town International Friendship Run

5.6km Run / Walk

2 April 2021 TBC

The continued easing of restrictions in the South African sports and tourism sector is positive news and has been well-received by the running community.

While the TOM NPC continues to plan for the eventual opening of international sport, to the extent that we will be able to host another world-class and safe running experience soon, we are unable to provide an update on this event until we have met with all the relevant authorities and stakeholders.

We will keep you updated as our plans progress and in line with the potential easing of COVID-19 regulations.


All International entrants are invited to meet on Good Friday morning for a scenic 5.6km  run / walk past some of the city’s most famous landmarks, including the Cape Town Stadium, Sea Point Promenade, Green Point Urban Park and Mouille Point Lighthouse.

Runners from all over the world get into the marathon spirit with their family and friends, who can also participate in the Cape Town International Friendship Run for a nominal fee, jogging with the flags from their various countries.
