Entries Open for Oceans 2017!


 Entries for the 2017 Old Mutual Two Oceans Ultra Marathon are open! Entries for next year’s race opened on Thursday, 1 September 2016 and with only 11000 entries available, we trust you’ll secure your spot?

Entries for the Half Marathon, 12km Trail Run, 22k Trail Run and the Fun Runs are not yet open and the date will be confirmed at a later stage. Runners will be able to change their entries – seeding updates, upgrades and substitutions (substitutions will only be done if all available entries have sold out).

These changes can only be done online between 9 January and 6 March 2017 – NO CHANGES whatsoever will be permitted after this date. Please note that only ONE entry change is allowed per entry (i.e. if you upgrade, you cannot also substitute the original entry; only one substitution per entry.

NO DOWNGRADES from the Ultra to the Half Marathon will be entertained whatsoever and similarly, NO DOWNGRADES from the Long Trail to the Short Trail will be entertained whatsoever.

Runners who have entered the Half Marathon can upgrade to the Ultra Marathon IF they have qualified and belong to an athletics club. The cost is R265 (this is the difference between the Half Marathon and Ultra Marathon entry fee) and can be done by logging into the online system and following the instructions. No Upgrades will be accommodated when the Ultra Marathon entries are sold out.

It is the runner's responsibility to find a suitable substitute as we do not keep a list – both if you are not running or want to run. One can only substitute a runner in the same race – i.e. a Half Marathon South African entrant can only be substituted by a Half Marathon South African that wants to participate. Please note that Ultra Marathon substitutions will only be done once the 11 000 entries have been reached, provided that this is before 6 March 2017.  Substitutions will be allowed in the Half Marathon and both the Trail Runs.
