The Sanlam Cape Town Marathon strives to be Africa’s ICONIC City Marathon, a City marathon that in time will take its rightful place as one of the worlds “must run” City Marathons.
In 2014 & 2015 the race was accredited as an IAAF Silver Label Status Road Race, the only standard marathon in Africa to receive this status, furthermore it is a certified Climate Neutral Event that promotes charities and development through PEACE and SPORT.
The Sanlam Cape Town Marathon is ideal for half marathoners who wish to challenge themselves to step up from the half to the full or to experienced experts who wish to qualify for one of the Ultras.

RAISING FUNDS FOR YOUR CLUB
One of the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon’s objectives is to use the event to leverage change. One form of this is to raise funds for charities and running clubs.
1. We encourage all clubs to register as a beneficiary cause with a crowdsourcing platform such as GivenGain;
2. Once registered we would suggest you create a Sanlam Cape Town Marathon project
https://support.givengain.com/hc/en-us/articles/205169232-Creating-a-new-project Furthermore your Members can then support this project by becoming an activist themselves. By becoming an activist, they can raise funds for your club whilst running the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon.
3. Once registered with GivenGain – please send us your club details, along with GivenGain details and we will list your club on the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon raising money page. Please send your applications to firstname.lastname@example.org
