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 backs 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 the last qualifier for Two Oceans Marathon in Gauteng.
21.1 km Half Marathon
Fast, flat, single lap of the marathon route.
10 km Development Race
Fast, flat route though a suburb of Vereeniging.
5 km Fun Run
Run... Walk... Fun for the whole family!
