On sunday 09th October, It’s Cape Town’s Gun Run!
No, it doesnt have anything to do with smuggling firearms, but if you enjoy fitness its probably just as exciting!
First held in 1993, the Gun Run is a popular half-marathon that winds its way through the heart of Cape Town, starting and finishing at Hamiltons Rugby Club in Green Point. The route passes the V&A Waterfront, travelling through the city’s central business district and along Sea Point promenade before returning to Green Point for the finish.
In addition to the 21.1km half marathon, there are also the more leisurely 10km and 5km races, which follow a similar scenic route but are less demanding. There’s a 21km half marathon, a 10km run/walk and a 5km run/walk. All three events start in Beach Road and finish at Hamiltons Rugby Club in Green Point.
Welgelegen urge it’s guests who enjoy fitness and running, to get involved as it is a unique and interesting way to enjoy the scenic beauty Cape town has to offer.
