ABOUT THE RACE
The organizers are staging the second Hemel & Aarde Marathon that is rated as one of the most spectacular races in South Africa. The entries are now closed and it was a complete sellout within days.
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 Hermanus High School where most of their vehicles will be parked in a safe and secured area. The donation per parking will be R50 and all contributions will be donated to the school.
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 1500 runners will have the opportunity to experience this amazing race in 2022 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.
