The Cape Town City Marathon – the first IAAF Gold Label event in Africa – will be held on Sunday and has attracted over 10,000 runners for the 42km distance.

Up front the elite field features Kenyans with Personal Bests of 2:08 looking to break the course record, while many will target the various Comrades, and Two Oceans seeding brackets or the sub 5 hour qualifying criteria.
Other will be happy to complete the distance in the final cut off time of 6 hours 30 minutes.

Everyone can benefit from logical, disciplined and practical pacing.

Here are the @capetownMarathon pacing charts that take into account the hills (yes there are some) and the downs (these are always welcome as we get tired)

It is hoped that these will assist all runners to achieve their best on race day:
