THE RUN



A look at the profile tells a simple story; this race is easy. The marathon route starts with a fast downhill charge followed by a testing climb for about eight or nine kilometres. From here, the race takes on a relaxed, relatively effortless complexion. This is arguably the most undemanding Two Oceans and Comrades qualifier and ideal for setting a PB, so a journey to Oudtshoorn will certainly be worth it. The run to the Cango caves is nothing short of spectacular. The start of the half marathon is in Park Road, opposite the Advanced Training Wing, the old Teachers' Training College.

EDITORS NOTES

Transport for the Marathon to the Cango Caves at 04h00 sharp and Half Marathon to OuTol at 05h00 sharp, will leave from Infantry School Parade ground.

The Infantry School Cango Marathon is the oldest and second-biggest marathon in the SWD and is attended by nearly 1,000 athletes each year. This event is also considered one of the 10 best races to qualify for the Comrades and Two Oceans Marathon. This is the only marathon before the Two Oceans Marathon in the SWD. Walkers are welcome to enter the half marathon.

The four kilometre fun run is held the Friday evening before the main races starting at 17h00 and the 9.5 kilometre Trail Run starts at 19h00 from the Military Sport Clubhouse in Oudtshoorn.

Make sure to round off the run with an ostrich steak which is said to have great medicinal properties for post-race recovery. This is one of the most understated races in South Africa. The half marathon run has a 03:00 time limit. The half marathon walk has a 04:00 time limit.
