Soweto Marathon registration deadline extended

Runners in action during the previous marathon.

Runners who have not yet registered for the Soweto Marathon now have two extra weeks to enter The People’s Race taking place on November 1.

The registration date initially scheduled for October 6, has moved out until midnight October 19, to allow athletes still wanting to participate in the 10km, 21.1km or 42.2km more time.

Soweto Marathon Trust chairperson, Sello Khunou said they want to make sure that all athletes have an opportunity to enter.

He said they realised that many athletes wanted to first determine their fitness levels before registering to avoid injuries leading up to the marathon.

Online and manual registration was closely monitored over the past week and the race organisers decided to extend the entry deadline.

“All measures have been taken to ensure runners have an enjoyable experience from start to finish.

“Safety and security processes along with a truly inspiring route will take the event experience to new heights and restore the Soweto Marathon to its top status,” said Khunou.

Runners can register at www.sowetomarathon.com or manually at the Orlando Community Centre, The Sweat Shop, Dunkeld West Shopping Centre, Fourways Crossing, Bedford Arcade, South Downs Shopping Centre, Run A Way Store in Lynwood Ridge, Central Gauteng Athletics in Germiston, The Runners Store, Transhed Shopping Centre in Pretoria and Running – Inn in Brookline Centre in Pretoria.
