After the hugely disappointing but totally unavoidable cancellation of the 2012 Knysna Marathon, it will be interesting to see if there is a decrease in demand for this sold-out event. My feeling is the heavy rain experienced will have done nothing to dampen the spirits of the thousands of runners keen on participating in this iconic race which is celebrating it’s 30th year!
I have just heard (19 April) that plans will soon be made public with regards alternative routes as well as plans for the finish should the weather again attempt to dampen the day!
As a result of the 2012 cancellation, the following decision has been made with regards the entry process for 2013:
- 15 February 2013 — 25 February 2013: entry only for those that passed through registration for 2012. Details later via sms and email.
- 04 March 2013: Balance of entries open to all.
- Applies to Full and Half Marathon.
