Cape Town - Online entries for the 2012 Old Mutual Two Oceans half marathon, the country’s biggest half marathon, open on Wednesday 9 November 2011 at 10:00.

The half marathon, together with the 56km ultra event, takes place on Easter Saturday 7 April 2012, and is expected to attract yet another record field if this year’s figure of over 30 000 entrants across all the distances is anything to go by.

The Two Oceans Marathon Association has increased the half marathon field to 16 000, but runners are advised to enter as soon as entries open as it is expected that all available slots will be snapped up in record time.

The event organisers have also extended the seeding times for the various starting batches and introduced a new route for the first ten kilometres of the half marathon. The new route will see participants make their way to the M3, up Edinburgh Drive and back onto the old route in Constantia, which will provide stunning views out over Muizenberg and one ocean, as well as help to alleviate the congestion experienced at the start.

Online entries for both the ultra and the half marathon close on 7 March 2012 or when 16 000 entries for the half marathon and 11 000 for the ultra marathon are reached – whichever comes first.

Entries for the trail runs will open on 18 January 2012, and trail enthusiasts wanting to secure their spot in this popular event will need to enter as soon as possible, as entries sold out in less than a day for the 2011 event.

Participants are encouraged to enter online at Alternatively, entry forms can be downloaded from the website.
