This year, the Michell’s Pass Half Marathon will be taking place in its customary slot of September and gorgeous weather is predicted. Anyone interested in
participating in the Half Marathon, 10km or 5km Fun Run can go online at www.topevents.co.za or contact Lionel Hill on 082-739-3545. This is a special 25th Michell’s Pass Half Marathon. Walkers are also welcome!
Run through a scenic mountain pass; the course is moderate and undulating. The first half is mainly downhill with a gentle climb from about 13 km to about 17 km when it becomes a rather steep pull to the 19 km mark. Thankfully, the last 2 km are downhill. There will be medals for those finishing the half marathon under 3h30min, as well as goody bags for the first 500 pre-registrations.
This year there will be a kiddies’ corner with bouncy castles, colouring in, games and entertainment throughout the morning. Stalls with Witzenberg’s
finest goods will be available from 07:00 in the morning, selling baked goods, arts and crafts. We are therefore urging all burgeoning entrepreneurs, be it
arts, crafts, baked or built, to apply for a stall at the annual Ceres Michell’s Pass Half Marathon Market.
The aim of the Witzenberg Market is to ensure that all stalls are proudly Witzenberg. This is thus your opportunity to market yourself to a wide market
of runners and their families, many of whom are not local. Application forms for the market are available at the Ceres Tourism office at the John Steyn Library in Ceres or at Tulbagh Tourism in Church Street, Tulbagh. Alternatively, you can contact the Ceres office on (023) 316-1287 and the Tulbagh office on (023) 230-1348.
