The Two Oceans Marathon is known as the world's most beautiful marathon - 56km Ultra Marathon around the Cape Peninsula since 1970. The course will remain on the traditional route, starting at Newlands via Chapman's Peak, Hout Bay and Constantia Peak.

It will take place in Cape Town, South Africa over the Easter weekend, on Saturday 3rd April 2021. The world's most beautiful marathon is well-known for the Ultra race (56km), and is a challenging route, with spectacular scenery, breathtaking views of clear blue oceans, majestic mountains and enthusiastic supporters.
