Pick n Pay Cape Times Knysna Forest Marathon
Race date – 12 July 2014
Well done to all the finishers of the 2013 Pick n Pay Cape Times Knysna Forest Marathon.
Thanks for all the feedback received regarding the 2013 event. I am responding to each one and busy working down the list. We do appreciate all your views and some are indeed quite interesting, like adding a formal Forest Ultra to the event to really spice it up. This would not happen any time soon but the seed have been planted so do not be surprised if this become a reality at sometime in the future!
21 km Prize Money
We will be in touch during the day on 15/07/ andd 16/07 with the prize winners to make arrangements for Prize money payouts
42 km Prize money
After several meetings at Provincial level between the the organizers and referees, the decision has been taken that the results of the 42 km Marathon is inconclusive and no prize money allocation can accordingly be done due to the varied extra distances ran due to the unfortunate marshaling error. The 2013 prize money will thus be added to the 2014 Full Marathon purse, giving all a fair chance to compete on a level playing field for double the prize money. The 2014 Full Marathon will become the showdown event and will be the place to settle the score between the contenders. The 2013 results will be classified as unofficial for podium positions.
