On Saturday 16 November 333 runners gathered at the south parking area of the Waterfront despite the weather report that promised rain. There was a squall shortly before the start of the events at 07:00, and the runners set off in the downpour, some to run 10 km and others to cover the 21,1 km of the half marathon. Five minutes later another group set off to cover 5 km.
This annual event is sponsored by Knysna Hollow and the Knysna Marathon Club is also most appreciative that the Waterfront management and stores are happy to allow the start and finish to be there. The 10 km event route is an out and back from the south parking, along the lagoon brick walk way, along George Rex Drive to the turning point just before the turn off to Leisure Isle.
The 21,1 km event continues past this point, onto and around Leisure Isle, back onto George Rex Drive and then up past the Heads viewpoint and all the way to the Pilot’s View point. The return route heads down the Heads, along George Rex Drive and then along the brick walk way and back the start area at the Waterfront.

We are looking forward to see you all back net year 14 November!
