Some interesting facts about the City2City Marathon:

  • The first city to city 50km ultra-marathon kicked off back in 1903 with only 30 runners. The route was a “down run” from Johannesburg to Pretoria and run completely along dirt roads.
  • The records for the race (both set on “down” runs from Pretoria to Johannesburg) are Bethuel Netshifhefhe’s 2:45:41 in 2006 and Frith van der Merwe’s 3:04:30 in 1989. Van der Merwe’s time is also the fastest ever by a South African woman over 50 km.
