Refreshment Stations for 21km

  • Half Marathon
  • Medical

Eight well equipped refreshment stations are positioned along the route.

Drinking Water

Drinking water is provided throughout the race in 100ml plastic sachets, with Coca-Cola in 175ml Coke cups. 

    Toilet Facilities

    Toilet facilities will be provided at every refreshment station and where possible will be located just past the station. Anti-social behaviour on the route and particularly before the race cannot be tolerated and runners are requested to please use the toilets provided and not private gardens or public areas.

    Medical Advice re Hydration

    Medical advice is that runners should drink approximately 100 ml of fluid (one sachet) every 15 minutes. It may thus not be necessary to drink at every station, as the dangers of over-hydration can be as severe as those of dehydration. Runners should modify their fluid intake to suit weather conditions on the day and should not experiment with new drinks on race day.


    We have over 3 000 volunteers along the route. Please be sure to thank them as you pass. 

    Please keep the world's most beautiful marathon route clean. Please don't litter; rather use the collection boxes provided along the entire route.

    In the interest of conservation all the plastic used on the route will be collected and recycled, as will the cans and bottles used on the grounds.

    Many volunteers spend many hours cleaning the route after the race and your co-operation is requested to keep the Cape in shape!
