Event Description

The Tronox Marathon takes place on Sunday, 31st of March 2019 from Addison Park, Empangeni. Distance options: 42.2km, 21.1km, 10km & 5km fun run.


This event is a qualifier for the 2019 Comrades Marathon 

The Tronox Marathon is a scenic and challenging marathon that starts with an out and back section through Empangeni. It then loops back past the start and heads out through the cane farms around town. Finally runners head out on the old Mtubatuba road. Here the 21.1km runners turn back after a short loop and head back to Addison Park on a flattish section that will test those that ran too hard in the previous 18km. The marathoners now head out to their real test. Around 21km in the ascent starts up what is known in the area simply as “big hill” going past “groot boom”. This is a fairly steep ascent of roughly 2.5km that will tax the novice and Comrades pro alike. Thereafter follows a slight reprieve with a long easy downhill before the route undulates to the turn around point after the steel bridge. A mostly uphill return now follows back up the easier side of “big hill”, and then the route undulates back to Addison Park
