Premium sponsors Builders Warehouse and Rafi’s Appliances and Mattresses will once again join forces to stage the 29th Friendly City Marathon, Achilles race director, Nick Chapman, confirmed. “Achilles has an objective to encourage and foster athletics, and the Friendly City Marathon offers a challenging course for runners. “It’s a beautiful run with a sting in the tail!” said Chapman.
The 2019 event will start and finish at the Fountain Vineyard Church field behind Builders Warehouse, off Buffelsfontein Road, on Saturday, September 7.
The course starts in the scenic neighbourhoods of Miramar and Upper Walmer, and leads runners towards Marine Drive. The 10km athletes will catch a glimpse of the Indian Ocean before they turn for the return leg. The 21km and 42km runners will run down “Schoenies Hill” and along the beautiful rocky coastline, the 42km runners go all the way to the back of Nelson Mandela University before they turn for the return leg.
