BALLOT SYSTEM FOR SOUTH AFRICAN ENTRIES

The ballot system will be retained for both the Ultra and Half Marathon for South African runners, in line with international best practice. Runners may enter only one event.

The ballot opens on 1 November 2022 at midday and closes on 14 November at midnight.

At certain stages of the ballots, the draws will be weighted in favour of various categories of runners including Blue Number Club members, Yellow Numbers (those doing their 10th, 20th, etc) and club runners.

The various rounds of the ballot draw all take place on 15 November 2022.

Runners entering via the ballot pay only once their name has been successfully drawn in the ballot.

Runners have until 5pm on 15 December 2022 to make their payment. Otherwise, the runner forfeits their entry and it will be allocated to another runner.

INTERNATIONAL AND REST-OF-AFRICA ENTRIES

International and Rest-of-Africa entries open on 25 October 2022 and close when capacity is reached.

International and African runners do not enter via the ballot system, and can pay for and secure their entries straight away.

CHARITY ENTRIES

Charity entries open on 18 November 2022 (midday). Fees will be uploaded once final charity partners have been confirmed.

ULTRA MARATHON QUALIFIERS

Any officially timed and measured marathon or longer distance, run after can be used as your qualifier. Race Office will be conducting spot checks to verify qualifier information submitted.

For the Ultra Marathon the qualifying time for a standard marathon distance is 5 hours. For qualifying times for distances greater than a standard marathon, please go here: www.twooceansmarathon.org.za/event_route_info/seeding

HALF MARATHON SEEDING

In the Half Marathon, qualifying times are used to seed you so that faster runners are at the front; slower runners further back. We strongly advise you to provide a seeding time. If not, you will unfortunately start at the back. Seeding is based on a previous 10km, 15km or 21.1km run after 1 July 2022: www.twooceansmarathon.org.za/event_race_day/seeding-2/

To have a successful Half Marathon event we strongly advise you to train for and run at least a 3h15 Half Marathon.

Race Office will be conducting spot checks to verify qualifier information submitted.
