Soweto Marathon is back again

Remo Malejane, Thabo Moroke, Sello Matthews and Karabo Sephadi took part in last year's Soweto Marathon.

The Soweto Marathon is back again this year and it promises to be even bigger and better than last year’s event.

It will be hosted at Nasrec Expo Centre on November 1.

With the backing of Old Mutual, the marathon will host about 21 000 runners.

The route will again pass key historic sites that show the township’s heritage and dynamic identity.

Soweto Marathon Trust chairperson, Sello Khunou said they are thrilled with this exciting partnership and it is encouraging to have partners who share their vision to deliver an event that is credible.

The marathon will cater for three distances which are the standard marathon (42.2km), the half marathon (21.1 km) and the 10 km race.

Participants can enter one of the three distances. Registration is opened online via the official race website,

The marathon is organised and hosted by the owners of athletics clubs in Soweto under the leadership of the Soweto Marathon Trust.
