Road closures in place for Two Oceans races

Road closures will be in place this weekend as thousands of runners take to the road for the Totalsports Two Oceans Marathon.

With the Totalsports Two Oceans Marathon taking place over two days this year, multiple road closures will be in place over the Easter weekend.

The half marathon will be run on Saturday April 16, and the ultra on Easter Sunday, April 17.

Motorists travelling to and from the areas on the False Bay coastline should either travel before 5.30am, after 8.45am or use Ou Kaapse Weg which will have a stop/go control for both vehicles and runners between 6.15am and 9am.

“Delays can be expected for the duration of the Totalsports Two Oceans Marathon,” the organisers said.

“We appeal to motorists to avoid using roads leading to the race route. Please comply with the directions given by traffic officers and marshals.

“Given the numbers of TTOM entrants and the parking/access constraints along the route of the half and ultra marathon routes, the public are encouraged to obey all officials and marshals and be aware of traffic when supporting the runners. Do not stand in roadways where vehicles are travelling.“
