Virtual Charity Challenge

TOM 2021 VCC - #TOM2021VCC

30 March 2021 - 30 April 2021

The Two Oceans Marathon NPC announces the launch of the TOM 2021 Virtual Charity Challenge (VCC) and invites all runners across the globe to unite in running for good.

The TOM 2021 Virtual Charity Challenge will take place between 30 March 2021 and 30 April 2021 and is entirely charity focused.

To participate in the Two Oceans Marathon Virtual Charity Challenge, runners will pay an entry fee of R90.00 to run or walk any of the distances listed.

Two Oceans Marathon Initiative (TOMI), the philanthropic arm of the Two Oceans Marathon NPC, will distribute funds derived from entry fees to charitable organisations that align with TOMI’s four pillars, namely, Education, Environment, Health and Wellness, and Athletic Development

To enhance the charity-centric focus of the event, runners are also required to register on BackaBuddy or GivenGain to raise funds, however small this amount maybe, for a charitable cause of their choice as part of their #RunForChange pledge

TOM 2021 Virtual Charity Challenge – Who to contact

Run anytime, anywhere and stand a chance to win great prizes

Participants may complete their race in one of more of the following distances: 5,6km, 10km and 20km.

Times will be tracked and uploaded via the SportSplits (FinishTime) App. In addition, runners may choose to record their times manually on the Honesty Log.

The results of every finisher in each distance category will be recorded in the Two Oceans Marathon Race Results.


Participants who successfully complete their race will receive a personalised TOM Finisher’s Certificate. A Runner’s Shirt at R195 each (Women’s and Men’s as shown below) and buff will be an optional extra, and may be ordered on entry.
