The Big Five Marathon takes you on an adventure through the South-Africa's Savannah of Entabeni.
In one of the most spectacular game reserves in Africa the challenging route crosses right through the habitat of the African game, including the famous Big Five: Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo, Lion and Leopard.
No fences, no rivers, nothing at all separates the runners from the African wildlife!
The event features both a Marathon and a Half-Marathon distance.
But It’s not only about the race. Our entry packages give you a chance to explore the many sides of South Africa; its rich culture, mouth-watering cuisine, and spectacular nature. We will take you to some of our favorite places, to be shared with fellow running-minded travelers, friends, and family.
Kindly be advised that entry to any Albatros Adventure Marathon is only available in combination with an official tour package. Race entry only is not possible for international runners. View our entry packages here
REGISTRATION IS OPEN UNTIL APRIL 12th, 2023
