Marafun

By kind support of El Sombrero Spur, Kara Nichha’s and PinkDrive, based on the 21,1km/42,2km Maritzburg City Marathon concept, we have devised a series of distances to accommodate young and old alike.

Beginning at 2pm on a given Saturday, the older kids, Mums, Dads, Grannies and Grandpas can take on a single 2,1km lap or, as in the BIG Marathon, double up and run 4,2km. The not so official time limit is 60 minutes.

At about 3.15pm, the 'littler' people can take up the challenge of a 420 metre run and then their younger brothers and sisters can run or walk 210 metres.

To round the afternoon off, there is a 42 metre TODDLER TROT followed by a 21 metre NAPPY CRAWL on the Pink Carpet. There are no position prizes. It's all about the FUN of taking part. First or last across the line. 8 months old or 80 years young, each finisher will get a medal and sample of our sponsors' products.

Cost of entry is a mere R40 per person for each event they wish to take part in.

Entries are taken during school times at participating schools or at the Marathon Registration on Friday 24th February and Saturday 25th February.
