Secunda, Mpumalanga – The 40th Sasol Secunda Marathon is taking place on Saturday, 15 February. The race is a Comrades and Two Oceans qualifier and in 2019 attracted 1 600 participants. Entries for this upcoming race are coming in fast.
For the past 40 years since its establishment, the race level has improved year after year. The starting time of the marathon is 06:00 at the Sasol Recreation Club on Nelson Mandela Drive in Secunda.

The event comprises three major races: a 42.2 km full marathon, a 21.1 km half marathon and a 10km run. Families and beginners are encouraged to participate for pleasure in the 4.5 km fun run.
