THE ROUTE - 42,2KM
The Hemel en Aarde Marathon is along a beautiful route and is a perfect way to experience a different side of the Overberg. Doing it with a pair of running shoes on makes the race an even more unforgettable experience. It is also famous for its uninterrupted views of the valley and rolling hills that are visible from any part of the route.
The Race is an escape from the average marathon and although most marathon runners will use the race to achieve a PB many runners will take a leisurely pace to experience the dazzling beauty of the race.
It was once said that “so high are the hills, which closely embrace the valley
all around, that they seem to touch the sky and you
cannot see anything but Heaven and Earth”.
