THE RUN




FACILITES

Buses depart from Bredasdorp Sports Ground for the start from 04h00, the last bus leaves at 05h00.



To describe this race as tough, undulating and spectacular is an understatement.  The marathon starts on the Elim road almost 10 kilometre outside Bredasdorp. You climb the notorious Soetmuisberg, 470 metres over eight kilometres to the water station at the FM Tower. If the gradient does not take your breath away the panoramic sweep of the Agulhas Plain will.


The half marathon starts on Grashoek Farm at the back of the Anysberg and within four kilometres you are presented with the same climb up the Soetmuisberg. To be sure, the half marathon ranks as one of the toughest in South Africa, but then this is “the toughest race with the warmest heart”.

EDITORS NOTES



EDITORS NOTES

The Voet van Afrika Marathon has been consistently ranked in a number of our surveys as a well-organised and well-presented event. The half marathon starts at 07h30 on Grashoek Farm at the back of the Anysberg and has a 4:00 cut-off. The local publicity association holds a festival over this weekend at the Bredasdorp Sports Complex with stalls, a beer tent, music and entertainment.

There is a four kilometre fun run, ‘Toontjie’, on the Friday evening before the main event. It starts at 18h00 and finishes at the Bredasdorp Sports Ground next to the registration venue.
