Framed by Table Mountain on the one side and the glistening Atlantic Ocean on the other, the V&A Waterfront’s newly launched 2.2km and 5km running route offers one of the most picturesque running tracks in the country.

The route starts at the Tourist Information Centre and snakes past many well-known V&A Waterfront landmarks including the Aquarium, the One & Only Hotel and the Cape Grace Hotel before winding its way over the Bascule Swing Bridge, past the Victoria & Alfred Hotel, the Cape Wheel and the Amphitheatre before reaching the iconic Table Bay Hotel. From here, the route reaches the Breakwater and the newly developed scenic Boardwalk Path which forms part of the route.

The Boardwalk offers various scenic lookout points where runners and walkers alike can take a breather as they soak up the beauty of the Atlantic Ocean, and possibly even spot a frolicking seal or a pod of dolphins. Runners then make their way to Granger Bay where the Cape Town Stadium will come into view, before finally heading back to the Tourist Information Centre.

The 2.2km route is marked in yellow while the 5km run is marked in red, and both are clearly sign posted making it easy for runners to track their distance. Free maps of the route are available from the Tourist Information Centre.
