Peninsula Marathon 2011

Posted on Nov 19, 2010 under Peninsula Marathon | 9 Comments

Update: the 2011 race finished and we got all Peninsula Marathon 2011 results online – you can also read my personal race review from my first Peninsula Half-Marathon 2011! Read everything about the Cape Peninsula Marathon 2012 here!

The Peninsula Marathon will return to the faster traditional route in 2011 that runners have grown accustomed to over the years. Race organisers were forced to introduce a new route for 2009 and 2010 to avoid the construction around the stadium, where the race has started for the past 41 years.

The marathon will start on February 20th in Green Point, near the World Cup stadium, while the half marathon will start in Bergvliet.  Both routes take runners along the Main Road through to the finish at the Naval Sports Grounds in Simonstown.

The Peninsula is always a popular event with local runners, as it is an official qualifier for the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon and many use it both to qualify and as their long training run.

    It’s Great news that the old route is back after so long as long as the S/E does not pump like it did this weekend 22nd Jan 2011…I really like the new route as well from Simonstown to Simonstown but I am looking forward to doing a good time again. I did what was supposed to be the “last” original Peninsula about 10 – 15 yrs ago and it still stands today as my PB of +-3hrs 18min…bring it on! Brian

    I ran the Peninsula Marathon yesterday; 26 years ago I ran it and it was my first ever marathon. I am pretty sure that my times were nearly the same.
    Does anyone have the race results for the 1985 Peninsula Marathon please – if I give you my name and race number could you tell me what my time was in 1985 please?
    Many Thanks
