Your race number [pinned to the front of your shirt] is your ticket to ride from Cape Town to the Start or from the Finish to your car after the run. Non-participating family and friends will not be allowed on the bus.
The buses to the Start will run from the GRAND PARADE from 05h30 to 08h15 AND NO LATER. If you miss the last bus, you miss the race!
There are limited toilet facilities at the Grand Parade so make sure not to load up on the sports drinks.
Buses from the Finish will run from 11h00 through until 14h00. You can catch the bus from Thibault Square, just down the road from the finish line. Please note this chartered bus will drop you off at the start at Woodbridge Island, should you need to go further you will need to catch a connecting bus.
Miss the last bus, you will have to find your own way home.
Study the Start Map to make sure you know where you have to go.
The start will be organised with seeding pens.
If you took the Gold Package, lucky you. Your special start pen awaits. Your friends will be jealous.
Your seeding will be on your race number (pinned to the front of your shirt).
The pens will feed in from the back and you will move forward into your sections.
Bring cash to the race! There will be plenty of vendors selling coffee/water/snacks at the start.
The race begins at 09h00 with no cut-off so you can either run a personal best with the speedsters or take your time and enjoy the trip.
There will be full road closures along the route. No planes, trains or automobiles allowed.
There are entertainment and vibe points along the route with water points at 3 km, 6 km, 8 km and 10 km. Each one will have specific sponsor and its own specific vibe.
Key historic points along the route include the Milnerton wetlands and its beautiful wildlife. You will have the unique opportunity to run through Cape Town harbour, the beating heart of the City. Views will include the iconic sights of Table Mountain and Lion's Head. As you float past St George's Cathedral spare a thought for the fact that the term "Rainbow Nation" was first coined here, so look around at your fellow runners and smile in the knowledge that you truly are.
