City2City Marathon returns

AFTER an eight years hiatus, the City2City Marathon is back, better and mouthwatering bigger.

The ever internationally popular race between Tshwane and Johannesburg, was last held in 2015, but returns in a partnership led by Gauteng Sports, Arts, Culture and Recreation, Athletics South Africa, Athletics Gauteng North and Central Gauteng Athletics.

The 50km ultra-marathon returns with a staggering overall purse of R1.2 million, with R200 000 going to each of the winners, with the runners-up taking R100 000 each and third-placed finishers pocketing R50 000 each.

The beloved road race will be held on 31 March 2024 beginning at Centurion Rugby Club at 6am and finishing at The Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg.

Entries are now available at www.webtickets.co.za, Pick ‘n Pay and Boxer stores. Runners can also visit Athletics Gauteng North (www.agn.co.za) and Central Gauteng Athletics (www.centralgautengathletics.co.za) for further information.

The ultra will be supported by a 10km and a 5km which will start and finish at The Wanderers Sports Club at 7am. Entries for all the races will close on 22 March 2024.

Fees are R300 for the 50km, R150 for the 10km and R100 for the 5km.

Participants will receive a race t-shirt and a medal will be awarded to all finishers.
