Seeding for 56km
Runner's qualifying times since 1 July in the year prior to the event, are used to seed them: faster runners in the front and slower runners at the back. International runners can use any race since the last Two Oceans Marathon (April 2015).
The seeding table is the same as was used in 2014. All 2015 Gold & Silver Medallists will be seeded in Group A. Runners wearing Blue and Yellow numbers will be seeded behind the C group unless they qualify for a higher group.
