The Voet van Afrika marathon, half marathon and 10km run walk is taking place in the scenic Bredasdorp region, at the southernmost tip of Africa. These races are unique in character, taking runners over rural dirt roads, mountainous tracks over the Anysberg, some rocks, sand, water and gravel, and eventually onto a seemingly endless stretch of tar road with some hills which will surely test your endurance. Here you will most probably not do your personal best, but you will put yourself in the company of the brave hearted, stretching your inner strength to its outmost limits. This all culminates into our warm-hearted hospitality with an absolute unique indoor finish venue with a food court, beer and wine garden, multisport expo and lots of entertainment.
