21st Slow-Mag® marathon


The Slow-Mag® Marathon takes place on Sunday, 14 April 2013 at Benoni Northerns Sports Club, Albert Bekker Park, and comprises five events: ultra (50km), full (42.2km), half (21.1km), 10km and fun run (5km).

Route description
The Slow-Mag® route is designed to show off the most attractive sights of Benoni. You will find the going generally flat, with one or two gentle hills to climb. This is a generally easy run. The route is run through the suburbs of Benoni and passes two golf courses. Adding interest to the day for those competing, 6 to 12 kilometres of the race is run through the upmarket and beautiful Ebotse Golf Estate.

The lap style race has the marathon runners completing two laps of the half-marathon route, while the 50km ultra follows the same route as the marathon with an additional 8km added at the end.

The 10km is an official CGA championship race, which is run along the route of the half marathon. And if you are simply out to have some fun, the 5km will take in portions of the half-marathon route, while allowing you the freedom to truly enjoy the sights of the surrounding suburbs.
