Route Description:
Difficulty Rating: 0. Route Type: Point-to-point

By ultra-marathon standards the course is forgiving and should set you up for a good time and a pleasant qualifier if you have further long distance ambitions. While the profile shows a generally downhill run, the last two kilometres will demand your last ounce of reserve. The half marathon features an out-and-back route with most of the work done in the first half. The second half is easy and mostly a downhill canter.

Editor's Notes:

This race will be staged for the fifth time in 2017. It is named as a celebration of the people of the Eastern Cape and its legends. It is conveniently placed near the end of the year, neither too hot nor too cold. The organisers encourage you to run for a personal cause. This year all donations will be used for the establishment of the Eastern Cape Athletics Academy to identify, support and nurture potential athletes from around the Eastern Cape. Start Times: Ultra-marathon - 06h00 from Bhisho Stadium, half marathon - 07h00 from Jan Smuts Stadium, East London.

Finishers: 3000
