Sani Stagger Marathon
23 November 2019
The race takes place along the 21 km gravel road of the Sani Pass, through the magnificent scenic route between the Premier Resort Sani Pass and the Lesotho border post. The 42.2km Marathon starts on the Premier Resort Sani Pass golf course and is run to the top of the Sani Pass at the Lesotho border and back down again finishing on the golf course. The race route has been measured by an ASA and international registered course measurer taking the shortest route along the course. Please bear in mind that the route is rocky, and uneven in places and you may not be able to take the shortest route.
This is a World Heritage site and we urge all runners to their empty cups etc. in the refuse bins provided throughout the route. This is a very serious matter and littering could cause you to be disqualified from the race. Runners do not require passports unless they are staying overnight at the top and they will then need to go through the South African and Lesotho Border passport control.
During the race only ATHLETES and OFFICIALS will be given access via the SA Border Control. Should you wish to visit Sani Top Chalet you will need to carry your passport and you will need to be processed through South Africa and Lesotho Border Controls. You may be arrested for illegal entry should you cross through the field and fences. NOTE: No vehicles will be permitted on the route unless authorised to transport runners. Please adhere to this rule so as to avoid disqualification.
