30km route
1. The race starts on the Camps Bay High Schools sports field at 05:30. It is an out and back route, with the turnaround point in Hout Bay at the “World of Birds” intersection. Runners generally run on the left hand side of the road and will be kept within the yellow line as far as possible. A coned channel will be created to assist with keeping runners on the left hand side of the road. However from the 27km marker the runners will be moved to the pavement where they will remain until they reach the finish at Maidens Cove. Traffic official assistance is required at the section the intersection of Lower Kloof Road and Victoria Rd.
2. From the start the runners proceed along Victoria Road in the direction of Hout Bay and pass first intersection Argyle Road (1 Km), further along the road passing the Pick ‘n Pay on the corner of Kloof and Victoria Road. Marshals for all these points have been allocated as per the attached spreadsheet.
3. Once runners cross this intersection they continue along Victoria Road passing the Camps Bay SAPS station, as well as a small intersection at Link road (Just behind SAPS) and continue further passing Houghton Road and moves out of the residential area of Camps Bay (3km). The route continues along Victoria Road and passes the Twelve Apostles Hotel on the left and the Llandudno intersection (traffic Light) on the right. The first water table is located in the road recess just before the 3km marker.
4. Once the runners reach the top of the rise on Victoria Road (9km) they will descend into Hout Bay passing the Suikerbossie Hotel intersection on the right. At the bottom of the hill runners take the off ramp to the left into Helgardia Road (12km) towards the circle at Valley Road turning left at the circle and proceeding in the direction of the World of Birds. The route continues for 3km along Valley Road with the only major intersection being the one at the World of Birds. The turn- around point is located opposite Greystone House in Valley Road.
5. At this point runners move back towards the traffic circle passing a minor intersection at Westerford Road. Once at Valley Road and they turn right into Helgardia Road and proceed to the traffic light and turn right into Victoria Road. At this point the 15km event joins the main race and follows the same route to the finish.
6. On the Suikerbossie climb the runners pass the intersection at Mount Rhodes Drive on the left and remain on the sea ward side reaching the 21km marker just pass the top of Suikerbossie and start the descent of 9km to the finish also passing the Llandudno traffic light (the only major intersection on the route back to the finish). At 27km the majority of the runners will be moved onto the pavement and in this way will avoid the three intersections in Camps Bay.

15km route
1. The 15 km starts in Harbour Road outside the Hout Bay Harbour at 06:30 (opposite the ENGEN Fuel Pumps) and at 3km joins the main race at 18km. The markers from 18km to the finish are the same for both races. There are 15 marshals allocated to this start and will be coordinated by Paul Cieverts.
2. The runners start at 06:30 and proceed toward the circle on the corner of Victoria Road and Harbour Road, Hout Bay.
3. Just before this circle the runners turn left into Albert Road and start the hill climb on this secondary road. Runners remain on this road for 2km and then move into Henshall Road. This section has 15 marshals and is coordinated by Suleiman Jacobs.
4. The runners join the main race at the Helgardia road intersection and continue on the back of Suikerbossie to the finish.
