Registration for 2016 is now closed. Get on the waiting list for 2017 here.

Highlighted by Forbes Magazine as one of the "Top 10 Marathons Worth Traveling For

The Big Five Marathon in South Africa is held among the wildlife of the African savannah. Runners from all over the world will meet in one of the most spectacular “Big Five” game reserves in Africa. 

In these magnificent surroundings, we combine exciting game drives with a challenging marathon route going right through the habitat of the most famous African game: Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo, Lion and Leopard.

No fences, no rivers, nothing at all separates the runners from the African wildlife.

“Don't miss out on a challenging and very rewarding race. You won't regret it!”
– Rune Nortoft, Head of Adventure Marathon
