The Cape City Run returns this Weekend

Runners from all walks of life are expected to come together this weekend as the City of Cape Town gears up to welcome thousands of athletes for the 2021 edition of the Absa Cape Town 12k CITYRUN.

The World Athletics Label road race returns to the Mother City streets for the first time since 2019. The 2020 edition of the race was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

This years race expects approximately 4 000 international, national and local runners.

The Cape Town 12k CITYRUN is the third biggest race on the events calendar for Western Province Athletics and usually attracts approximately 14 000 local and international runners, but this has been reduced due to the Disaster Management Act regulations.

The race will kick off at 7am on Sunday, November 21, at Woodbridge Island, and the finish line will be marked along Lower Long Street in the CBD.
