    Two Oceans Ultramarathon, Cape Town

    The highlight of my running career. Though I had completed several marathons, I had never run an ultramarathon before — nor had I been to South Africa. Active Travels made everything so much easier, organising not just flights and accommodation (just 300m from the race starting point!) but also airport pick-up and a tour of the Cape Peninsula. Magic from start to finish.

    The ah-ha moment on the trip

    1. The sublime beauty of the scenery — two oceans, rugged cliff-face roads, and forested mountain territory.
    2. The extraordinary camaraderie of race participants and crowds. This country is still healing from the wounds of apartheid, but for the duration of the race, black, brown and white runners were all working with each other (and even, in my case, singing and dancing with each other).

    Feedback on the trip guide

    The guide — Adolf — was knowledgeable, funny, and kind.

    Tips for future travellers for this trip

    The expo the day before the race was a poorly organised mess. We spent three hours standing in the sun because of hold-ups at the expo venue. Travellers should be advised to bring a hat, a warm jacket (Cape Town can be cool at this time of year), and if possible a folding stool. Three hours standing is not good for an ultramarathon runner’s legs!

    Other miscellaneous information that can help future travellers

    The Newlands hotel was perfectly located and the staff are wonderfully kind. There is an Indian restaurant attached to the hotel, which is good for runners coming from the subcontinent.
    The tour of the Cape is utterly worth it. The day after the event, the legs need the minimal walking the tour demands in order to recover.
