Easter weekend in South Africa means pickled fish and the annual Two Oceans Marathon.

But with great marathons come great road closures. Cape Town locals will be familiar with these by now, but if it’s your first time – and particularly if you live out in the deep south, be prepared for disruptions.

The ultra and half marathons will take place on Saturday, 20 April 2019 and road closures will start early in the morning. There is also a fun run on Friday, 19 April 2019 which will also impact traffic. Details to the road closures for the 2019 Two Oceans Marathon can be found below.
