OMTOM 56km Ultra Marathon - 20 April 2019

The Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon is a 56 km (35 mile) ultra marathon held annually in Cape Town, South Africa on the Saturday of the Easter weekend. Self-proclaimed as “the world’s most beautiful marathon", the ultra-marathon will take place on Easter Saturday, 20 April 2019 in Cape Town. The 56km route will remain the same as usual. The race is run against a backdrop of spectacular scenery through the Cape Peninsula. It is as stunning as it is challenging.  The very popular half marathon is also held on the same day as the ultra marathon, but does not include Chapman's Peak DriveRoute Information
