We look forward to working with you during the 2017 Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon.
To help you make you most of the week ahead, please have a look at the following information, and let us know if you need any assistance.
MEDIA ACCREDITATION: The only way to gain access to the media centre or be on the press truck is to apply for media accreditation. If you haven’t applied yet, please do so by the end of today! If your publication needs a photographer on the finish line, application must be done by close of business today (10 April).
On Race Day, the top 3 winners (male and female) from the Ultra and Half Marathons will come to the media centre for comment and interviews, and there will be an opportunity for you to chat to them. You are also able to follow the race live from the media centre.
EXPO: The Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon Expo opens at 9am on 12 April. Deputy Mayor Ian Neilson will officially open the Expo. You are also invited to join us for an exclusive tour of the Expo. Please click here to RSVP and meet us at the OMTOM Media Centre at the CTICC at 08h30 am.
MEDIA GUIDE: You will receive a hard copy media guide when you collect your accreditation. Please email us to request an electronic copy of the media guide. It is jam-packed full of stats and information – everything you need this week.
MEDIA CONFERENCE: There will not be a media conference this year. Instead, the media centre will be situated at the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon Expo at the CTICC between 12 and 14 April. Here, you can collect your accreditation (if you have applied), conduct interviews, etc. Simply email us to make the necessary arrangements.
