Cape Peninsula Marathon
S A Guide-Dogs Association for the Blind was nominated as one of the beneficiaries for the Cape Peninsula Marathon on Sunday, 15 February. The race started in Main Road, Green Point at 05h15 while the half marathon started at the Bergvliet Sports Club at 07h00 with both routes taking the runner on a fast, flat course through the finish at the Naval Sports Grounds in Simon’s Town.
The event was organised by the Celtic Harriers in association with Top Events and is an official qualifier for the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon and Comrades, with many runners using it not only as their qualifier but also as a long training run.
A big thank you to all the organisers for the generous contribution to our Association, to puppy raiser Peter Taylor for your role in allowing us to be a part of this great event and to Rondebosch Boys High School for assisting us at our water station.
