There are many worthy charities and causes, and it is easy and fun to create your own personal fundraising project for a charity you wish to support. Let’s make the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon one of the biggest fundraising events in South Africa.
In addition to the 42.2km Sanlam Cape Town Marathon, there are five events to choose from — 10km Peace Road Run and 5km Peace Road Run. If you would prefer to run on trails there is the 46km Cape Town Marathon Trail by Ryan Sandes, and the 22km and 11km Trail Runs, so something for everyone.
Select and enter your race, and choose to ‘Run with Purpose’.
