Race Description

This race has become the most popular marathon and half marathon combination in KwaZulu Natal. The race not only has generously achievable cut off times (31/2 hours for 21,1 km and 6 hours for the marathon) but caters equally for runners and walkers. Registered wheel chair athletes are welcome. This is an ideal entry level Marathon or Half Marathon.


Again – More 2011 Comrades entrants used this race as their qualifier than any other race.

In our continuing efforts to improve this event, the Natal Carbineers, Orion and Verulam Athletics Clubs have, again, the Weekend Witness as a Media Partner. We have also engaged the assistance of other role players to assist us in improving sponsorships and activities. With their assistance we are growing the event to include an EXPO, PASTA DINNER and FUN RUNS along with the usual fare and upgraded entertainment.

Keep an eye on this web site and the media for the arrival of each piece of good news.

A whole weekend of running festivities.

We have also acquired assistance in the establishment of a KIDZONE for both Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th February. Here, your family will be safely entertained whilst you run or enjoy the EXPO. No more excuses! No more feeling left out. No more running on your own in different races. Now both Mum and Dad can enjoy and achieve together and the kids will be there to share your day.

We are determined that this become one of the ‘Major City Marathons’.
