CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA

Cape Town is the location of the Africa Intercontinental Marathon ™ and the second marathon during the World Marathon Challenge ®.

Cape Town is a port city on South Africa’s southwest coast, on a peninsula beneath the imposing Table Mountain. Slowly rotating cable cars climb to the mountain’s flat top, from which there are sweeping views of the city, the busy harbor and boats heading for Robben Island, the notorious prison that once held Nelson Mandela, which is now a living museum.

The Africa Intercontinental Marathon will take place at Sea Point Promenade, Cape Town on December 1st. The event is scheduled to start opposite the Winchester Mansions Hotel, and consists of six loops of 7.3 km on a flat, scenic course.
