Your Marathon of Choice in Africa

The WitnessMaritzburg City Marathon, which is powered by Clover andVuma 103 fm, takes place on the LAST SUNDAY IN FEBRUARY, ANNUALLY.

The 2015 'Maritzburg City Marathon takes place at 5:00am on Sunday 22nd February 2015.

This race has become the most popular marathon and half marathon combination in KwaZulu Natal. The race not only has generously achievable cut off times (three and a half hours for 21,1 km and 6 hours for the marathon) but caters equally for runners and walkers. Registered wheel chair athletes are welcome in the half marathon (for safety reasons, we, unfortunately, may no longer include these athletes in the marathon or 10km). This is an ideal entry level Marathon or Half Marathon.

The basket of races also includes a 10km race beginning at 9am. This is open to runners and walkers and has a generous 2 hour limit.
To give you something different, we have added two trail runs. Andrew Booth of KZN Trail has partnered with the Maritzburg City Marathon, to design a “figure 8” trail course along the banks of the Umsinduzi River. The trail will offer a 5 km option as well as a 15 km distance.

THE MARATHON OF CHOICE

Traditionally, more Comrades entrants used this race as their qualifier than any other race.

In our continuing efforts to improve this event, the organisers have the The Witness as a Media Partner and Clover handling logistics. Vuma 103 fm bring a whole new dimension to the media, entertainment and corporate support of the experience. We have also engaged the assistance of other role players to assist us in improving sponsorships and activities. With their assistance we are growing the event to include an EXPO, PASTA DINNER and FUN RUNS along with the usual fare and upgraded entertainment.

Keep an eye on this web site and the media for the arrival of each piece of good news.

A whole weekend of running and entertainment festivities.
