Entries for 56km

  • Ultra Marathon

** 2018 ENTRIES - TBC **

The 2017 Old Mutual Two Oceans Ultra Marathon online entries are open from 01 September 2016, and will close as soon as the 11 000 Ultra Marathon entry limit has been reached.

Runners do not need to qualify before entering the Ultra. While runners are required to submit their qualifiers in order to participate, this information only needs to be supplied by 6 March 2016.

Ultra Marathon participants are required to belong to a running club, but may add their renewed provincial license number at a later stage (the final deadline being 6 March 2016).

Runners with five or more OMTOM Ultra medals can use their previous year’s race results as their qualifier (i.e. 2016 OMTOM Ultra time for a 2017 entry).

Blue/permanent number holders do not need to qualify, provided they have run in either of the previous two years.

No downgrades to the Half Marathon are allowed; only substitutions.

Runners participate at their own risk. The organisers and the sponsors cannot be held responsible for any damage, injuries, illness or losses incurred whatsoever - whether before, during or after the race.
