Road Races November 2018



Information about the races has been obtained from the Runnersguide website and is up to date at the time of publication of the newsletter.  The racing calendar definitely sees a slow down as we approach the end of the calendar.  The month starts with a big bang of marathons before petering out with gaps on some weekends.

7 November 2018



Races Missed: Soweto marathon

Sunday 11th November

Alberton Half Marathon & 10km

The Alberton half is probably the flattest 21km in Joburg as the town is off the hilly rand. The race starts at 6am in the morning from the Alberton Rugby Club, which is where the athletics club also based. The route can be exposed but with the early start one would be done very early.

Sunday 25th November

RAC City Lodge Tough One 32km

The RAC Tough One is a traditional race on the Pirates calendar and as such it will have a gazebo and a breakfast. The route is a testing one with a long slog up gradual gradients (read slow poison) from the right turn off Witkoppen around 14km. This is one of the 21 bucket list races to do in the 2nd half of the year.



Races Missed: Tshwane Oppie Bol Disability Awareness

Saturday 17th November

Tom Jenkins Challenge Run/Walk

There is a half marathon and a 10km at this race. The race is run through the historic suburbs of Pretoria and starts and finishes on the lawns of the Union Buildings. Make no mistake this is a very difficult race with a brutal climb up the dreaded Tom Jenkins Drive above the Union Buildings. This is one of the 21 bucket list races to do in the 2nd half of the year.

Saturday 24th November

Voortrekker Monument Half and 10km

This is a brand new race on the calendar so route information is a little scarce. What is guaranteed is that the route will be very tough. Those that are familiar with the Vasbyt race know that the Voortrekker monument sits on top of a hill and no matter how they craft the route there will be a brutal climb in it somewhere.



Races Missed: Kaapsehoop Marathon

Saturday 10th November

Spar Bela-Bela Marathon

The Bela-Bela marathon is the biggest race in Limpopo in the entire year. Definitely a race of two halves with a pan flat first 21km followed by a very hilly 2nd half.

Saturday 10th November

The Winelands Marathon

The Winelands Marathon is a race between Stellenbosch and Somerset West and back again. For those that are familiar with the winelands you will know that the area is not flat with the R44 between the two towns including a lot of little valleys. Look out for the turn up the gravel Stellenrust road to really deliver a cheap shot.

Saturday 17th November

Medihelp Cherry Race

The Cherry race is part of the Ficksburg Cherry Festival. It can definitely be defined as a mountain race with the high point on the Imperani Mountain being roughly halfway along the course. It has been called Free State’s biggest race with all the visitors at the cherry festival. This is one of the 21 bucket list races to do in the 2nd half of the year.

Saturday 24th November

Sani Stagger

There is quite a contingent of Pirates runners who are going to do this race. One of those events where if you blink you would have missed the entry window (even marathon entries closed within a day). The Sani Stagger is a brutal marathon with 21km up the Sani Pass to the summit before turning around and running back down again. Well over 1000m of elevation within 10km. This is one of the 21 bucket list races to do in the 2nd half of the year.

Road Races October 2018



Information about the races has been obtained from the Runnersguide website and is up to date at the time of publication of the newsletter. October has some interesting races before a few massive ones in November.
5 October 2018


Sunday 7th October

Spar Women’s 10km Joburg

The Joburg event of the Spar Women’s series is a 10km from Marks Park around Greenside, Emmarentia and Parkview. It uses many of the same roads as some of our training runs so not quite as flat and fast as advertised. The race includes on the day entries from the venue.

Sunday 14th October

5km Fun Walk 4 Champs

The Fun Walk 4 Champs is an event hosted by our Pirates 2 Pirates partners – the Greater Motlana Branch of the Orlando Pirates Supporters Club.  It is a fund raising event to raise funds for the Vukani Learning Centre.  It is an event that we encourage Pirates to support.  It is based at the Moletsane Sports Complex near Jabulani Mall.

Sunday 14th October

Burger & Co 15km

The Burger & Co is the old Sportsmans Warehouse 15km and has been moved back to the Boksburg stadium.  The route includes many of the same parts as the Colgate race in May and as in Boksburg it is flat and fast.  Interestingly enough this race doesn’t hand out medals with finishers all getting a buff.  Entries are available at the venue before the race.

Sunday 21st October

Diepkloof Half Marathon & 10km

The Diepkloof Half is a tough race using some of the hills found on the Soweto Marathon route.  The race entry includes a t-shirt to the first 1000 entrants.  Entries are available on the morning of the race.

Wednesday 31st October

Rowlin National Brokers 15, 10 & 5km

This is another Benoni Northerns race and one of the few remaining night races left. Being in Benoni it will be pancake flat. They always try make it a festive race so it is termed a “Glow Run”? Entries are available at the start.


Saturday 6th October

Chamberlain Capital Classic Half Marathon

The Chamberlain Capital Classic is another race hosted by Phobians and is just one of the large PTA races in October. The route is quite a tough route with the half marathon being a double lapper of the 10km. Entries are available on the morning of the race.

Saturday 13th October

SABS Jacaranda City Challenge

The Jacaranda City Challenge is Pretoria’s big marathon in the second half of the year. The marathon and the half are pre-entry only which close on the 5th October. The race has moved venue down the road to the Pretoria Rugby Club. The route is flatter compared to other Pretoria races with the route all being within the bowl of Pretoria – no worries about Waterkloof Ridge.

Saturday 20th October

CSIR Half Marathon

The CSIR race is run from the CSIR campus just to the side of the N1. The race has a challenging part to it as it runs to the top of the koppie that is part of the CSIR campus. Entries are available on race day at the venue.

Saturday 27th October

CSIR Irene Farm Race

The final race in the Irene series and probably the most interesting one as the route takes you around the Irene Diary Farm and the Irene Golf Course – there is a stretch through the farm where you run through a barn whilst played to by a boereorkes.  Entries are available on the morning of the race.


Saturday 13th October

Voet van Afrika

This year is the 40th edition of Voet.  This is a very tough marathon as portions of it are on trail straight over the mountain above Napier before heading back to Bredasdorp.  The race has a special character with many of the Cape Town clubs using it for their out of town race.  The race is pre-entry only which is sold out.

Sunday 14th October

Outsurance 94.5KFM Gun Run

The Gun Run is one of the bigger half marathons in the country, rivalled only by the Two Oceans Half.  The course is flat and fast with only one slight hill to even worry about.  The race is pre-entry only with entries closing on the 4th October.

Saturday 20th October

Harrismith Mountain Race

The mountain race is described as tough, tough, tough….  The race is one of the oldest races in South Africa and definitely the oldest trail race as it has been held since 1922.  The race climbs up and down the Platberg above Harrismith with the route being 7km up and 7km down (one “flat” km on the top of the mountain).  Entries are available on race day which starts at 9:30 (historically a late start to allow runners to get there from Gauteng and Natal).
