Buffs Marathon
Buffs Marathon

This point to point route (starting on the Stutterheim Road going back towards East London) is run through the green hills close to East London. Forgiving and mostly downhill, the early stages of the race are beautiful and easy to run. The run is deceptive though so make sure you take it relatively easy in the early stages.

The route takes you over a small drift with about ten kilometres to go and then the hard work begins! There are a couple of hills to climb so if you’ve gone out too hard and too fast in the beginning you might pay for it now. The Old Mutual Buffs Marathon is known as one of South Africa's nicest races with the overall impression of it being a pretty run.

Pre-entry is essential and category winners receive cash prizes.
All entrants receive a T shirt and all finishers a bronze medal.
