VOET VAN AFRIKA MARATHON, HALF & 10 KM

THE RUN


To describe this race as tough, undulating and spectacular is an understatement.  The marathon starts on the Elim road almost 10 kilometre outside Bredasdorp. You climb the notorious Soetmuisberg, 470 metres over eight kilometres to the water station at the FM Tower. If the gradient does not take your breath away the panoramic sweep of the Agulhas Plain will. The half marathon starts on Grashoek Farm at the back of the Anysberg and within four kilometres you are presented with the same climb up the Soetmuisberg. To be sure, the half marathon ranks as one of the toughest in South Africa, but then this is “the toughest race with the warmest heart”.
