Entry Details:
Entries are accepted at Durban area races prior to the marathon and at the Flora Chatsworth Athletic Clubhouse at the Chatsworth Stadium. No entries taken on race day.
Route Description:
Difficulty Rating: 3. Route Type: Circular
The first half of the race is moderately undulating with no major hills. The route goes through the residential areas of Chatsworth where there is lots of crowd support. A special treat is a run through the scenic Silverglen Nature Reserve. The challenging part of the route comes between the marathon mark and 45 kilometres where there is a gradual yet testing uphill climb. The final five kilometre stretch to the finish should prove relatively easy.
Prizes and Give-Aways:
All finishers receive a T-shirt.

Editor's Notes:
The people of Chatsworth provide lots of entertainment and encouragement along the route, which helps to make this a magical experience for the long-distance runner. This is the only ultra in the Durban area that is a Comrades qualifier. There is also a 25 kilometre run/walk which starts at 06h00. This is a one lap race that incorporates the first half of the ultra marathon.
Finishers: 1400 Time Limit: 06:30
