JACKIE GIBSON MARATHON & ALAN FERGUSON HALF MARATHON

THE RUN


The marathon route is made up of two laps of the half marathon route. To be sure the opening stages provide some testing with a demanding four kilometre pull out of the start venue. There is some respite at around the five-kilometre marker and again at the 26-kilometre board, but all too quickly the second test will prove every bit as steep and as long as the first. The second part of the half marathon is sublime.

Easy running in the main with a small two kilometre incline at the end as you wind your way towards the scenic finish in the Klipriviersberg Nature Reserve. This classic race is run through the pleasant picturesque areas of the new Southern Suburbs of Johannesburg.
