42.2 km Marathon
A highlight on the road running calendar! This two-lapper gently meanders through four suburbs of Vereeniging and has a section along the banks of the Vaal River. While it is fair to say that the route is flat, it is by no means the easiest marathon; you will have to work the whole way. This race also serves as a qualifier for the Comrades Marathon and Two Oceans Marathon.
21.1 km Half Marathon
Fast, flat, single lap of the marathon route.
10 km Race
Fast, flat route though a suburb of Vereeniging.
5 km Fun Run
Run... Walk... Fun for the whole family!
