Post Record field for Safari Half Marathon

A record field of close to 12 500 runners and walkers will take part in the Safari Half Marathon in Wellington on Workers Day, Wednesday 1 May.

With over 2 000 more people than last year, participants are advised to get to the event early in order to find parking and to avoid the congestion into Wellington. Race organiser Kevin Lodge advises runners who have entered the half marathon or the relay events to leave Cape Town before 5am to give them enough time to get there.

Wellington can be accessed via either Exit 47 or Exit 49 off the N1. Lodge recommends that runners use Exit 49 if they can see there is a backup at Exit 47, as it will bring them into Wellington via Paarl and will alleviate some of the congestion that is experienced by runners on route to the event.

Runners must collect their numbers and goodie bags from the registration point they chose when they entered the event. Number collection will take place on Friday 26 and Saturday 27 April between 10h00 and 17hoo at Sportsmans Warehouse Rondebosch, Canal Walk, Tygervalley, Somerset West and at Huguenot High School in Wellington. Runners who chose the high school as a registration point can also collect their numbers there on Tuesday 30 April between 10h00 and 19h00. There will be no number collection on race day or at Sportsmans Warehouse after 27 April.

The 21.1km half marathon and two by 10.5km relay event starts at 07h10, the 10km walk at 09h30 and the 5km fun run at 09h00. Entries for the half marathon, relay and 10km walk have closed but participants can still enter the 5km fun run at the number collection points at various Sportsmans Warehouse stores or on the morning before 06h45 .

Participants are encouraged to bring their family and friends along to enjoy the day and join in the post-event festivities. The race offers all participants scenic routes through the streets, country roads and beautiful vineyards of Wellington. The carnival atmosphere at the finish adds to the overall experience and participants can enjoy the many farm stalls, craft markets and entertainment.

The event has chosen to support two charities namely CANSA to sustain their vital research, education programmes and patient care; and the local Wamakersvallei Training Centre that serves the Wellington community by providing subsidised training for students in child, baby and frail care, plus cooking and housekeeping.
