ABOUT THE RACE
The organizers are staging the most spectacular Marathon in South Africa. The entries will open on 1 December 2019 and they expect a complete sellout within 72 hours, so grab this opportunity and enter immediately.
The race will start in the picturesque town of Caledon and will take the runners past some of the most amazing landscapes and across the rolling hills of the Overberg.
The winding road will take the runners towards the Whaling Town of Hermanus where they will reach the finish line at the well known Whalehaven Winery.
The most beautiful Wine Farms that nestle in the surrounding hills will be a true reflection of the name of this spectacular marathon. The winding road towards Hermanus has breathtaking views that makes the Hemel En Aarde Marathon a "must do" race on the bucket list of every runner.
Only 2000 runners will have the opportunity to experience this amazing race in 2020 and every runner will receive an extraordinary medal and a specially designed T-Shirt sponsored by ASICS that will reflect the journey through one of the notorious areas in the Southern part of our country. Truly something to be proud of.
The local farming community will play a supporting role at the watering points and the organizers will create a carnival atmosphere every step of the race.
The Hemel En Aarde Marathon promises to take a “not to miss” status on the South African Running Calendar.
