Sasol Marathon around the corner

Sasolburg, South Africa – As one of the most popular marathons on the racing calendar, the 24th Sasol Marathon, taking place on Saturday, 3 February 2017 at the DP de Villiers Stadium in Sasolburg, will host this year’s 42.2 km Free State Championship.

However, this is not an event only for champions, as novice runners and families of all ages and fitness levels are encouraged to sign-up as the course is mainly flat with gradual gradients. It is this feature that attracts participants to achieve their fastest times as the Sasol Marathon is a Two Oceans and Comrades Marathon qualifier.

The event offers a 42.2 km full marathon or a 21.1 km half marathon. For families and children looking to enjoy some healthy, outdoor fun, there is a 10 km race and a 4.9 km fun run. Walking athletes are welcome to participate in the 21.1 km, 10 km and 4.9 km fun run.

Although pre-entries have closed, late entries will be accepted on the day of the race from 04:30 at the DP de Villiers Stadium in Sasolburg. The 42.2 km marathon, 21.1 km half marathon and 10 km race will start at 06:00, while the 4.9 km fun run will start at 06:30.
