Sanlam Cape Town Marathon

Marathon Runners Portal Registration

Seven reasons to register and get immediate access.

1. The Club Captains List: search by area and find your local Club Captain
2. Your historic Cape Town Marathon results on your dashboard
3. The latest news, before newsletters and social media (like catch-up if you missed the social media posts)
4. In-depth, nitty gritty detailed route information
5. Find your recent marathon photos.
6. Your race number will, in time, be added to your dashboard
7. Your entry status will reflect on your dashboard

We recommend using the same email and password you used on the entry site (Howler) to make it easier. The portal is not linked to your entry on Howler.

NB. This registration does not mean you have entered one of the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon Events. The Marathon Portal serves to improve your personal experience.
