Two Oceans entry deadline
- Updated: March 14, 2011
Entries for the Old Mutual Two Oceans, one of the country’s biggest ultra-marathon events, close at midnight on Wednesday 16 March and those wanting to take part must have submitted their entry before this cut-off as no late entries will be accepted.
Just over 6 700 entries have been received to date and in comparison to the entries last year, there is every indication that the event will exceed the 10 000 entry mark, making it the biggest field ever in the history of the event.
Participants can enter online at www.twooceansmarathon.org.za.
Entries for the half-marathon already closed in early January and a record field of just over 14 000 participants will line up opposite the swimming pool in Main Road, Newlands on Saturday 23 April.┬áMore than 2 000 hopefuls were turned away and the office is inundated on a daily basis with calls from people looking for half-marathon entries.┬áThe social media is also abuzz with people putting out messages regarding spare entries.
Runners have until 16 March to do substitutions, upgrades or downgrades and to submit their new seeding times.┬á After this date, no late entries or changes to entries will be allowed.
The event office is appealing to runners not to run while wearing someone else’s race number and to rather take the substitution route. ÔÇ£Last year we had the unfortunate incident of a runner getting into distress at the finish line who was using someone else’s number, which caused an inconvenience to both the medics and the families involved,ÔÇØ said race director Rowyn James.
