Cape Town shakes to the rumble of thousands of feet tomorrow, in the annual human stampede known as the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon, “the world’s most beautiful marathon”, and the city’s biggest run.
It’s called the Two Oceans because its longest race – a 56 km ultra – stretches from one side of Cape Town’s peninsula to the other, thus visiting, according to some theories (and marketers), both the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. The fact that this theory is bunk should not detract from a pleasant morning for all participants, from the 5 kayers to the ultras.
