iSimangaliso St Lucia Half Marathon and Fun Run

Event Date: 

St Lucia Ski Boat Club


Run for Rhino and other Endangered Species

Calling all ardent athletes, weekend walkers and couch potatoes… it is that time of year when temperatures ease off, and you can breathe again… perfect for an invigorating walk around iSimangaliso's beautiful forested Lake St Lucia Estuary. The annual iSimangaliso Half Marathon, Fun Run/ Walk powered by USM takes place on 18th May 2014. It caters for absolutely everybody from gogos to toddlers – even babies in strollers are welcome. Competitive athletes and fitness fanatics know that the race is officially registered with KZN Athletics; for the rest of the crowd, it offers an opportunity to dust off the takkies and get those limbs pumping along with a merry band of fellow runners and walkers, in the cool shady forest of the estuary banks, iGwalagwala Trail and the beach road. Timed two weeks before the Comrades Marathon the 21.1km is an ideal warm up event.

Once the activity is over, the fun doesn’t end as the St Lucia Ski Boat Club is a perfect venue for lunch and even better for sundowners.
