Edenvale Marathon 2021

The Edenvale Marathon is a Charity Race and the profits are donated to different Edenvale Associations. The 2020 Edenvale Marathon was able to donate R348 000.00 to the Edenvale Community. 

The 2021 Edenvale Marathon will be hosted this year as a virtual run with once again a strong focus of giving back to the Edenvale Community. Small Charities and Associations need our help now more than ever due to the impact of Covid-19.

Join us and run anytime, anywhere during the month of April, while challenging yourself and giving back to the Edenvale Community.

Unfortunately with no head line sponsor this year there will be no medals or goody bags however there will be great lucky draws prizes. 

There is also a R5000 Running Club Lucky Draw! One entry for every 50 Club Entries!
