Licence & Club for 56km

  • Ultra Marathon
  • Athletics Clubs

Licence Requirements

Athletic club membership is not optional but it can be obtained after entry. All entrants residing in South Africa entering for the Ultra Marathon must be in possession of a valid provincial running licence. In order to obtain a valid 2017 licence entrants must be registered with an athletics club affiliated with Athletics South Africa (ASA). Entries can be done without having renewed the provincial licence number as it can be completed later. Temporary licences will not be issued.

Club Colours/Running Gear

All South Africans must wear the clothes of the athletics club, they are a member of as indicated in their entry. No identification of sponsors of individual athletes may appear on advertising inside the competition area. Advertising tattoos or any advertising marks on any part of the body is illegal. Age category indication will be included on the printed race numbers which must be clearly visible on the front and back of the running vest, if competitors are to be eligible for any age category prize apart from the open category. Additional (separate) age category tags may be worn but are not required, and the age indication on the race number takes precedence. The domicilium rule will be strictly enforced. No athlete may run for a club other than a registered club in the Province in which they are domiciled unless they have been declared a National athlete by ASA.
