In the event that a registered athlete participating in the Loskop Marathon 2018 cannot collect his/her race pack and require a third party (club / individual) to collect on his/her behalf, a letter of consent accompanied by identification documents of all parties will be required.
The 32nd Forever Resorts Loskop Marathon Series, presented by the Middelburg Marathon Club, remains one of the best organised events on the South African running calendar and is host to thousands of runners from all over the world.
This Family Fun Run takes place on Saturday, 21 April 2018, from the start of the 21,1km Wild Challenge (near the Dam wall). This unique run will be towards the Resort along the dam. You may pre-enter online or enter on race day at the start for R35-00 per entry and contribute towards the FRIENDS OF LOSKOP CONSERVATION FUND. No prize-money will be awarded, but all finishers will receive a medal. Walkers are also welcome. The tickets are sold at the 21,1km Wild Challenge registration point at a demarcated area and tickets go on sale as soon as it becomes light , around 5:50. The Fun Run starts at 06:45, as soon as the cannon is moved from the 21,1km start to the start of the Fun Run. Participants use the same shuttle service as the 21km athletes to get from the resort to the start, however preference will be given to the 21,1km athletes as their race starts earlier and is an official event. The fun run starts in the road in front of the petrol station at the Damwal shopping centre, and follows the same route as the 21,1km back to Loskopdam, a Forever Resort.
This race has pledged itself to Modern Athlete’s #runclean campaign. Runners are urged to honor this pledge by disposing of sachets or other refuse at water points and only at designated refuse bins. Please do not throw your water sachets in the veld. Rather drop it in the road if you miss the provided bins for ease of cleaning up.
