Maritzburg City Marathon

Posted on Fri February 10, 2017.

This race has become the most popular marathon and half marathon combination in KwaZulu-Natal. The race not only has generously achievable cut off times (four and a half hours for 21,1 km and six and a half hours for the marathon) but caters equally for runners and walkers. Registered wheel chair athletes are welcome in the dedicated quarter and half marathons on Saturday morning, 25th (for safety reasons, we, unfortunately, may no longer include these athletes in the road running races). This is an ideal entry level Marathon, Half Marathon or 10km.

 Maritzburg City Marathon takes place at 5:30am on Sunday 26th February 2017.

 The 2017 Witness Medihelp Maritzburg City Marathon, powered by Clover and Khayelihle, and all its ancillary activities will take place at the Golden Horse Casino, New England Road, Pietermaritzburg.

 The Scottsville Race Course will offer plenty of off street parking. There will be a walk of about one kilometer to the start from the parking and, if you still have to collect race numbers on the day, allow for an extra 500 metres. 

You are respectfully requested to avoid walking across the horse race track.

 There is a pedestrian subway which will get you safely across and there will be a dedicated pedestrian lane through the motor car subway as well.

 If you pass through the hotel to the start, please go AROUND the gambling area and please be respectful of the hotel and casino patrons.
