TOMI Two Oceans Maratho‌n Initiative

TOMI Two Oceans Maratho‌n Initiative

The Two Oceans Marathon Initiative (TOMI) was launched ahead of the 2012 event, as the philanthropic arm of the Two Oceans Marathon NPC, to provide much-needed funding for charities that match Two Oceans’ four social impact pillars:

As always, runners have the option of donating to TOMI when entering every TTOM Ultra and Half Marathon event.

As a runner, you also have the option of buying a charity entry. Official charity partners for the 2025 edition of our race will be announced after general entries open to the public, and after the official charity partners for our 2025 event have been chosen.

By the end of TTOM 2024, more than R2,4 million was fundraised for 65 charities by 1 894 donors, with the highest donation being a very generous R11 742! These funds were either directly donated to TOMI, thanks to the generosity of Two Oceans Marathon runners upon entering, or via TTOM-related campaigns on GivenGain.

As a runner, you also have the option of buying a charity entry. These can be purchased directly from any of our official charity partners for 2025, who will be announced in due course. 

Whether you’re participating via a charity entry or normal entry, all runners are encouraged to give back to one of the official charity partners or to their own favourite charity, by creating a fundraising page on GivenGain, then sharing it with friends and family for donations!

Monetary amounts raised on GivenGain are paid over directly to the charities on a weekly basis.

In 2019, the Two Oceans Marathon, through the Two Oceans Marathon Initiative (TOMI), became the first running event in South Africa to raise more than R1 million on the GivenGain platform – and we’ve only gone from strength to strength! Thank you to our TOMI runners, supporters and donors for your passion and generosity!
