The race consists of a 5km fun run, 10km, 21.1km half-marathon, 42.2km full marathon and a 50km ultra-marathon through the streets of Benoni’s suburbs.

The route is designed to show off the most attractive sights of Benoni and runners will find the going generally flat, with one or two gentle hills to climb.

All in all, it promises to be a reasonably easy run.
