Two Oceans Marathon

The Old Mutual Two Oceans Ultra Marathon attracts the cream of local and international athletes, offering a tough challenge against a backdrop of spectacular scenery.  It has earned a reputation as the world’s most beautiful marathon. The first race was held in 1970 and saw 26 runners line up to face the unknown challenge. Since then, the race has become a national institution and a firm favourite with local, upcountry, and international athletes. The 2016 Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon will take place on Saturday, 26 March
