THRESHHold Hillcrest Marathon



The 2019 Threshhold Hillcrest Marathon, will be the 40th edition of an event that is always one of the favourites on the KZN running calendar.

Our marathon is again the first KZN Two Oceans and Comrades qualifier of 2019 and your result will automatically be submitted as your qualifying time for Comrades Marathon 2019.

Any participant of any event who finishes within the generous cut-off times will receive a commemorative moisture management T-shirt and medal.

Entries will be closed when the cap is reached, even if this is before the stated closing date.
