A message from our Race Director:

Jeppe Athletics would like to thank Pick n Pay for 35 years of successful sponsorship of our marathon. Unfortunately, due to economic reasons they have decided they can no longer be the headline sponsor of the event. We are sad to see them go and we will be forever grateful to them.

Jeppe Athletics are still in the market to secure a new sponsor for the event, now named, Jeppe Marathon. The club has taken the decision to go ahead without a sponsor in 2019 as we owe it to all the runners out there. We ask that runners please understand and support the event while we move through these difficult economic times.

We would like to assure all participants that they will still be able to enjoy the top class event that they have become accustom to.

Looking forward to hosting you in 2019.
