Watch out for race scam


Please note that runners registered for the Old Mutual Soweto Marathon are receiving false SMS messages instructing them to collect their race packs from the Union Buildings in Pretoria and to bring R50 along.

The Soweto Marathon Trust along with Old Mutual urge everyone who has received the SMS to ignore it as the information is false.

Race pack collection will take place at Johannesburg Stadium and without any payment due by runners. The venue will open for runners to collect their race packs from 09:00 – 18:00 on Thursday and Friday, 29 and 30 October 2015 with extended hours on Saturday, 31 October 2015 from 09:00 to 19:00.

Further details regarding collection will be communicated to all registered runners directly from the organising committee.
