The 2014 Cape Town Marathon event is managed by a joint partnership between Western Province Athletics (WPA), ASEM Running and the City of Cape Town. Endorsed by Elana Meyer and Francois Pienaar, it will be held from Saturday, 20 to Sunday, 21 September 2014. The classic 42.2km Cape Marathon is the centre-piece of a festival of running through Africa’s Mother City that includes a 10km Peace Run, a 5km Fun Run, Trail Runs in the Table Mountain National Park, a team-building Relay and Prestige Mile Races.

The new Cape Town Marathon route is competitive, yet beautiful, offering this year’s runners a unique experience that highlights the City’s natural splendour and top cultural attractions. The field is inclusive of the world’s elite athletes, club and non-club runners, wheelchair racers, casual joggers, social runners and walkers. Athletes and spectators can enjoy Cape Town’s unique festive atmosphere at safe, fun supporter zones along the route, and at Cape Town Stadium in Green Point.

Cape Town Marathon delivers a sustainable and charitable event that brings together runners and supporters to experience the exceptional spirit of Africa’s world-class City Marathon.
