TOMI Two Oceans Maratho‌n Initiative

TOMI Two Oceans Maratho‌n Initiative

At the heart of the Two Oceans Marathon is a social collective that comes to the party with one purpose – to pay it forward and advance social upliftment. 

The Two Oceans Marathon Initiative (TOMI) was launched ahead of the 2012 event, as a fundraising
initiative that provides much-needed funding for charities that match Two Oceans’ four social impact pillars:

  • Education
  • Environment
  • Health
  • Athletics Development

Every year, charitable organisations are invited to apply to become an official beneficiary ahead of the
next year’s event. Beneficiary applications for 2020 have not yet opened.
