Cape Town’s history is long and storied. It is a city with unrivalled culture and diversity, boasting a heady mix of old and new. Nothing speaks to this more than the iconic attractions made up of Cape Point, City Walk, Groot Constantia, Kirstenbosch, Robben Island Museum, Table Mountain Cableway and V&A Waterfront, that form the core of the Mother City.
The Sanlam Cape Town Marathon has a vision of becoming one of the rare World Marathon Majors as it believes that it is the ideal host for an iconic African city marathon. The marathon organizers mission is to deliver a prestigious, sustainable, all-inclusive city marathon event that brings together world runners from elite athletes to wheelchair racers, as well as social and first-time runners, for an exceptional, world-class marathon experience. It is the only AIMS gold label marathon in Africa.
Choose from a range of full day options: Tour of the winelands of Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl; Tour the spectacular coast on your way to the Cape of Good Hope at the tip of Africa; or cage dive with great white sharks.

Being my first visit I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the coast, the tours, meeting different people, running in a new country. The Safari was well organized!
Stunning scenery in parts of the race - especially the first few kilometers and the stretch that went out to the southern/western neighborhoods.
